A maximum and a minimum circuits with multiple inputs are proposed. The operating speeds of these circuits are independent of the number of the inputs. Since the proposed circuits consist of only NMOS transistors, they can be implemented in semi-custom IC forms. A potential application of these circuits is a real-time fuzzy controller.
