I am trying to do distortion analysis of a circuit
using a MOSFET in linear region. If I use a
BSIM3V3 model the results are incorrect because
of discontinuity in the high-order
derivatives of Id vs. vds characteristic around
Vds=0. This is a known problem. (see for example,
paper by Y. Tsividis, K. Suyama, IEEE Jl. Solid-State
Circuits, March 1994).

My question is: has anybody has been able to overcome
this problem? I am aware of EKV model but do not
have access to a practical model derived from
characterizations that I could use.

Thanks,
Subhajit Sen

Then you're out of luck. Your choices are either to bias the signal
path away from vds=0, or change to a good model.

As you say, this is a known problem. The best solution is to choose a
model which has no vds=0 kink. This implies a model which isn't
source-referenced. Both BSIM3 and BSIM4 fail. EKV mostly is OK, but
the most successful models that meet these criteria are
surface-potential based models.
