Example 8.6 defines
the experimental configuration for the *DONOPT* optimization tool
conforming to Section 4.2.1. In this definition the
**model** entry selects a file named
`"mos-metric.mod"` containing the **model** depicted in
Figure 8.5. The entry **free** denotes the *V*_{T} implant
energy (*vt-energy*), the LDD-implant dose and energy
(*n-min-dose*, *n-min-energy*), the LDD-annealing time
(*n-min-time*), and the phosphorus source/drain implant energy
(*n-sd-energy*) to be utilized by the optimizer in order to
improve the optimization target. The **target** of the
optimization is selected to be the output port *quality* of the
**model**.
