Objective: Determine the critical voltages on the voltage transfer curve of a CMOS inverter.

Consider a CMOS inverter biased at V_{DD} = 5 V with transistor parameters K_{n} = K_{p} and V_{T N} = −V_{T P} = 0.8 V. Then consider another CMOS inverter biased at V_{DD} = 3 V with transistor parameters K_{n} = K_{p} and V_{T N} = – V_{T P} = 0.6 V
