This paper deals with the ignition of a diffuse dielectric barrier discharge in air at atmospheric pressure with a high voltage rectangular pulse supply. The study is focused on the effects of dielectric materials. The current and voltage waveforms of discharges with different barriers look similar. But the discharge development process can be different. It is described by many synchronous electron avalanches in a case of alumina ceramics, and by a streamer - in a case of acrylic glass.
