An alternative simple description of FET drain current provides the flexibility of an extra parameter which can be chosen to approximate the Shockley expression or general power law. An empirical polynomial expression which uses only integer powers is used to provide computational efficiency. The new expression gives the designer a more accurate FET model which is consistent for both large-and small-signal simulations.
