In the domain of electronics (semiconductors), what is meant by "strong current" and "weak current"? I'm no scientist, but even I can tell from the following sentence that it's not "high voltage" and "low voltage":

Of course you're wondering what "this" is. Again, I'm no scientist, so here's the website where I found this. It's very dense, at least for me.

Any help is appreciated, but I think this is a question for the techies.

Thank you in advance.

Edit: Also, are strong/weak current different from high/low current? (Perhaps these last two are the same as high/low voltage? But I'm just guessing.) And again, thank you in advcance!

"The result of this is that breakdown can occur at a lower voltage in the case of a strong current than in the case of a weak current."
