TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The APELC MG15-3C-2700PF is compact 15-stage generator that was designed to drive low impedance resonant transmission lines for high power RF. This generator is characterized by a 3 - 5 ns risetime and multi-GW peak power levels, due to its low impedance design. The generator is capable of delivering 300 kV into a 23 Ohm matched load., or as much as 600 kV into an open circuit. The generator is designed to deliver 100 J per pulse and has been demonstrated to operate with a 100 Hz repetition rate, with an integrated 10 kJ/s power supply.
