== Tool Verification ==
45 -
46 -
Verification of the PN-Junction tool is done by comparison of the
47 -
simulation results for the electric field in equilibrium with the depletion
48 -
charge approximation results. This verification process can be done only
49 -
while running the tool, as it superimposes the depletion charge
50 -
approximation results.
