5.2 Statistical Process Influence

Some of the simulation parameters, such as low field mobility, themselves are subject to statistical variations caused by epitaxial uncertainties. At the same time, undesired effects of the technological process on device performance, measured by gain, breakdown voltage, or output power, are strong. In the following a summary of effects is collected from literature. A separation into statistical and more systematic impact of the process steps and parameters is performed.
