When a constant current source is sourcing 1mA with clamp voltage of 1 v, is there a possibility that an in-rush current is experienced much higher than 1mA say during a shorted load or capacitor charging. What is really actually happening? What is the importance of a rise time specs in current supply and its settling time?
