    A recent letter reported ill conditioning in nonlinear circuit simulators caused by the introduction of self-heating effects into FET models. This is true for circumstances outlined in that work but is a consequence of using an incomplete thermal model. This letter points out that an account for both thermal potential and mobility variation with temperature will eliminate the problem.
