A re-calibration requires a calibration procedure which is based on all preexisting measurements and additionally includes latest measurements. Otherwise the accuracy for earlier technologies would deteriorate despite of the fact that the calibration starts with parameters that were appropriate for these technologies.
Figure 9.3 shows how a re-calibration can be implemented
in a straight forward manner within SIESTA.
Assuming that technology A, B, and C have been the basis for an existing set of model parameters, the calibration system is extended by another model which evaluates the simulation accuracy for a new technology. Thus, a calibration which uses the extended model of Figure 9.3 also takes earlier measurements into account and it can be expected that the resulting sets of parameters are a lot better in terms of predictability, since they have been determined on a broader base of knowledge.
