Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and operation of a multichannel, high voltage pulse generator. The pulse generator produces six pulses with rise times of 1- 2 ns and peak voltages over 20kV. Each of the output pulses is separately controlled to provide a variable pulse delay of up to 15ns. Jitter between pulses is <50 ps. The circuit is based on a primary pulse generator and six ferrite loaded transmission lines which simultaneously reduce the rise time of the primary pulse and delay application of the six output pulses to their loads. The pulses in each of the ferrite transmission lines are independently controlled by simple DC current sources.
