Very helpful thanks.

Choose the correct statement, please, from your formulas and models:
1. Base current are prime while Vbe voltage drop are parasitic.
2. Vbe voltage are prime while base current are parasitic.

In any PN junction, the presence of a Potential Barrier is indispensable. In forward bias condition, with a voltage of opposite polarity applied to the junction diode, an increment of ionic charge (current) takes place at the negative terminal of the diode.

Also under reverse bias, a Potential Barrier that opposes the applied voltage (force) will necessarily develop. In order for that to happen, strong covalent bonds need to be broken. They do not break voluntarily nor easily, must be forced to do so.

In place of the lousy semantics like "driven", "electronic and radiative excitation" would be a more suggestive nomenclature. The important acceleration of electric charge is accomplished by electromagnetic force fields.

I guess whether you call something a voltage-driven device or a current-driven doesn't really matter since the two are related. I find it helpful to think of driving power transistors in terms of charge transfer.

Switching MOSFETs are often described in terms of Id vs gate (to source) charge; a charge-driven approach. A bipolar is also charge-driven except that it continually leaks charge rather than only integrating it. Because transistors store charge they have a capacitive characterstic. And a bipolar will turn itself off via its own charge leakage so can be "push" driven as in a darlington, but a MOSFET has no such leakage so needs to be "push-pull" driven.
Everything matters.
