The Van Roosbroeck semiconductor device equations are put into useful analogy with the Arrhenius equations of combustion theory. Both, when written in appropriate variables, enjoy (suffer) exponential nonlinearities. Here, we present this analogy in rather simple terms. It is proposed that this analogy be further developed.
