Or

Which is probably the right one blush.gif

EDIT: @PassTheSalt: I'm not absolutely certain about that so it's still up for grabs laugh.gif

So Vbb, Vdd, Vee, Vss and more? What about them, huh?

Like BNC, I don't think they have any real (or useful, at least) abbreviation. The rule is, take the nearest connection (for BJTs, Base, Collector or Emitter; for FETs, Source and Drain), take the first letter and double it. Hence, source voltage (negative for NMOS) is -Vss.

VCC VDD V+ VS+ = Positive Supply voltage

VEE VSS V− VS− = Negative Supply voltage
