We present some recently acquired results corresponding to the nature of the electron transport that occurs within bulk alloys of zinc-magnesium-oxide. These results are obtained using three-valley ensemble semi-classical Monte Carlo electron transport simulations. The impact that the magnesium content plays in shaping the form of the electron transport related characteristics associated with this alloy system is explored. Both steady-state and transient electron transport results are examined. The device implications of these results are then commented upon.
