43    == Tool Verification ==


44    
45    Verification of the PNJunction tool is done by comparison of the


46    simulation results for the electric field in equilibrium with the depletion


47    charge approximation results. This verification process can be done only


48    while running the tool, as it superimposes the depletion charge


49    approximation results.
