45  == Tool Verification ==  
46  
47  Verification of the PNJunction 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.
