SIMPLIS Multi-step Runs - Overview

The SIMetrix environment provides a facility to automatically run multiple SIMPLIS analyses. Two modes are available: parameter step and Monte Carlo.

  • In parameter step mode, the run is repeated while setting a parameter value at each step. The parameter may be used within any expression to describe a device or model value.
  • In Monte Carlo mode, the runs are repeated the specified number of times with random distribution functions enabled. Distribution functions return unity in normal analysis modes; but in Monte Carlo mode, they return a random number according to a specified tolerance and distribution. Any model or device parameter may be defined in terms of such functions allowing an analysis of manufacturing yields to be performed.
