Not necessary at Vdd, it might be at <Vdd. As long as the bulk and the source are connected together.

hi richloo
i am not thoroughly convinced with your answer. What if source is at Vdd and bulk and some constant voltage (say 0.1*Vdd). In that case the ac equivalent has source and bulk at zero but they not both at Vdd.

Hi Karthikeya,

u r correct too. What i m trying to say is that as long as the bulk and source of the PMOS is connected together, vbs is always zero.
