== Tool Verification ==
46 +
47 +
Verification of the PN-Junction tool is done by comparison of the
48 +
simulation results for the electric field in equilibrium with the depletion
49 +
charge approximation results. This verification process can be done only
50 +
while running the tool, as it superimposes the depletion charge
51 +
approximation results.
