    Hi all, wondering if anyone can help pass on some clarity on some terms that I have heard, but not fully clear on what they mean.

    - Wimpy transistors
    - BUNKH power domain
    - tucked/untucked transistors

    Thank you.

    The context is all important. These could mean just about anything by themselves.

    A wimpy transistor is one that cannot sink or source very much current. A similar term is a "weak pullup".

    I thought the subject title was specific enough but I guess it may not have been.

    Context is related to CMOS semiconductor process transistor designs.

    Your best bet is to do a Google patent search for those terms to see the details of they mean.
