For distributed devices the transport equations have to be solved. Of course
it is possible to solve for Poisson's equation alone which is sufficient for
the description of dielectric structures with complicated geometries. These
devices are treated contact-wise in *MINIMOS-NT*. Each contact is connected to the
rest of the circuit via a zero-valued voltage source. The contact current is
part of the solution vector and the constitutive relation for the contact potential
reads

with being the node voltage of the circuit node connected to the device. The stamp is given as
