The MIT Virtual Source model  is a recently developed compact model for nanoscale transistor. It is a semi-empirical model based on the physics of electron transport at nanoscale. The model requires only a few input parameters, most of which can be obtained from experimental data. This model produces an accurate result as well as maintains simplicity.
