    Finding DC operating points of transistor circuits is a very important and difficult task. To cope with this difficult task, homotopy methods have been studied from various viewpoints. For efficiency of globally convergent homotopy methods, it is important to construct an appropriate homotopy function. In conventional homotopy methods, linear auxiliary functions have been commonly used. In this paper, a homotopy method using some nonlinear auxiliary function is proposed. The proposed method utilizes a nonlinear function closely related to circuit equations to be solved, so that it efficiently finds DC operating points of practical transistor circuits. Numerical examples show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
