We review recent theoretical studies of the symmetry properties of charge injection transistors. These studies, based on continuation modeling and transient device simulation, incorporate self-consistently the electron energy and real-space transfer currents over heterojunction interfaces. Inspection of the full device phase-space reveals a variety of instabilities and a striking novelty of multiply connected current-voltage characteristics. We have found anomalous steady states in which hot-electron injecter in which the ASE has a greater effect on the overall performance. The final issue addressed is the noise figure under similar circumstances.
