The CRV data format is used by the MINIMOS-NT  device simulator to store simulated I/V data to a file, or to read such data from a file. It is a structured representation of data sets, each of which representing a sequence of operating points as one would expect it in a plot of these data. For example, a transfer characteristics ID/VG at a given drain voltage could be an element of a CRV file. Several such elements can be present in a CRV file such as transfer curves at different values of the drain voltage. Description C.1 shows the syntax which is used to describe CRV data. The lines beginning with #p, #n, and #u define the number of control values per operating point, the names of all columns, and the associated units of their values, respectively. Each line of the remaining part describes an operating point where the first N columns represent control values, and the remaining columns represent response values. Operating points which form a sequence are separated from others by an empty line. This enables plotting tools to identify those sequences and to connect these points with lines etc.
An example of CRV data is shown in Example C.1 and Figure C.1. Figure C.1 shows an ID/VG-curve produced by a MINIMOS-NT simulation, while Example C.1 depicts the textual representation of the CRV data.
