Verification of L-UTSOI is supported on basis of the Q&A toolkit of the Compact Modeling Coalition (CMC). With L-UTSOI releases we post the variant of this toolkit that is run at CEA-Leti to verify the L-UTSOI model. In the subdirectory L-UTSOI/ of this toolkit one can find tests and reference data to support L-UTSOI model verification.
The purpose of the tests is to support conformance checking between various implementations. Tests have been carefully developed to focus on physically relevant parts of the transistor characteristics and avoid extremely low- or extremely high bias regimes, where the output of simulations is known to be simulator dependent. Large bias steps and extreme initial conditions have been avoided, so as to avoid appealing strongly to the convergency aids of numerical solvers involved. Robustness testing is explicitly not within the focus of this test suite.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
