    Virtuoso: Value of Capacitances

    Hello
    Dear All
    I am working on designing Opamp in my course When I started to work with frequency response and I have three questions ( attached two photos one for DC operating and another for Model parameters)
    1- The two lists give values for internal capacitances which one should I use?
    2- In DC operating list there are capacitances for any MOSFET with negative value what does that mean?
    3- for units "aF" does it mean Angstrom unit with 10^(-10) and fF for Femto Farad (10^-15) ??
    Best Regards,

    Depends on what for. If you need the total capacitance of a node, use those with double characters: cgg , css ... It's always meant as capacitance against the "0" node, mostly GND .

    I guess victoriya's answer is the best I've seen.

    The "a" means "atto", which is 10-18, whereas 1 ångström means 10-10 m = 10-4 µm , it is only used as a length unit. femto is correct: f = 10-15 .
