No. Nothing can change, say, voltage from 0 to 5V in 0 second. It is physically impossible. Think about this. What is voltage? Due to electrons? How does voltage change? Due to electron or charge movement? Does electron have finite speed? Below speed of light? If a voltage can change instantaneously, does it mean that electron has infinite speed?...
