The breakthrough in low cost electronic switching devices has brought about the design of solid state, breakerless, capacitor discharge ignition systems. Through the use of a magnetic pickup, permanent magnets, and these new solid state devices, a maintenance-free ignition system can be designed. Through the use of these components, an ignition system can be designed to meet the particular needs of the 4-cycle engine.
