In order to meet the requirements of advanced process and device design, a new generation of technology CAD (TCAD) simulation frameworks is emerging. These are based on a data level providing a common data interchange format. Such a format must be suitable for building simulation databases, and needs to be supported by tools and a procedural interface with multi-language bindings for data storage and retrieval by application programs. In this work, the data level of the Viennese integrated system for TCAD applications (VISTA), which includes the profile interchange format (PIF), the PIF binary file manager (PBFM) and the PIF application interface (PAI), is described from a framework point of view
