3.5 The Network-Model

The network-model combines several models to a new model. Figure 3.4 gives a schematic view of a network-model encapsulating two models.

The network-model offers features that keep even extensive simulation tasks maintainable to a TCAD engineer. Due to its flexible structure, it enables a wide range of simulation applications, since it implies virtually no restrictions to the users creativity. The network-model serves as a perfect basis for sophisticated TCAD applications like optimization, calibration, or statistical analysis, since it enables the formulation of complicated matters by means of models of various types.
