SPDi Spark

SPDi Module

The SPDi Spark Ignition Module Features:

  • 4 Separate Ignition Channels.
  • Long Duration Plasma Sparks to 15,000 rpm.
  • Programmable Spark Power and Spark Duration.
  • Produce Different Sparks for Cranking, Idle, Cruise, and Acceleration.
  • Crisp Throttle Response, Improved Engine Efficiency, Lower Fuel Consumption, and Lower Emissions.

The SPDi Module acts as the heart of the SPDi Spark ignition system. The SPDi ignition module uses Spark Shaping Technology to produce a long duration plasma spark that promotes combustion efficiency.

SPDi Spark produces a long duration plasma spark that supports combustion with ionization. The spark duration is programmable; you can create a short high energy spark or long duration plasma to support the entire burning process. The increased burn duration and plasma ionization help extract all of the energy from the fuel.


ECU Interface

The SPDi ignition module is designed to work with an ECU. We are currently working on a distributor based system that will be available in 2013.



The SPDi module is micro controller based with user programmable memory. The flexibility of the hardware allows it to be continuously upgraded with new features.



SPDi is a user programmable ignition system. SPDi can be programmed to provide variable spark energy at different engine operating conditions. The SPDi Manager software allows the user to upgrade the firmware and change spark profiles.

Spark Energy

Up to 300 mJ in the gap

SPDi has programmable energy

Spark Power

Up to 50 watts continuous

SPDi has programmable power

Primary Spark Voltage

Programmable 90 V to 180 V

SPDi minimizes primary voltage to reduce load on ignition components.

Secondary Spark Voltage (theoretical)

Up to 42 kV on a 235:1 turn ratio ignition coil

Few ignition coils can handle more than 40 kV on the secondary windings

Size (L x W x H)

3.5” x 3.2” x 1.1”





Operating Current

6A at 15,000rpm

SPDi instantaneous currents can exceed 20A for 100 µs

Battery Voltage


As an option, SPDi can be programmed to operate at 6V.

Tach Output


SPDi aux output can be programmed to provide a tach signal.

ECU - Ignition Feedback


SPDi aux output can be programmed to provide an ignition feedback signal required by some ECUs (example Toyota/Lotus 2ZZ engine)

Temperature Range

-40C to +100C

SPDi has thermal protection circuitry to shutdown when internal temps exceed 100C.  SPDi will resume operation below 90C.
