  • An ignition system is a method for activating and controlling the combustion of fuel in an internal combustion engine. For a car, it is initiated by turning the car's key in a lock to start the engine.
  • In semiconductor processing, ignition is the process of starting up a plasma generator. In DC plasma systems, this involves a trasition from voltaic arcing to sustained and delocalized plasma generation. RF and microwave systems must produce sufficient power at the proper frequency to generate usable plasma, which generally requires some adjustment of the equipment.
