The MG30-1C-100NF coaxial Marx generator is a 30-stage Marx generator with 100-nF of capacitance per stage. The maximum charge voltage is 20 kV per stage which corresponds to a match-impedance load voltage of about 300 kV. The characteristic impedance of this Marx generator is 40 Ohms. The MG30-1C-100NF has applications which include material breakdown studies and high power microwaves.
