7.4.2.1.2 effects

Lets look at at the definition of equation ([*]). For illustration purposes let assume that is not a function of gate area, . A small perturbation of the gate area results in Taylor series,

(7.24)
   
     

In this case equation ([*]) still hold but has to be reevaluated.

This example demonstrate the very limited importance of the inclusion of the term into the calculations.
