An array of 24 field-effect transistors (FETs) is being used to switch a nominal 4-kV, I-its pulse onto a Metglas induction core at pulse rates exceeding 100 kHz. Each transistor receives isolated gate power from a de/de converter and analog pulse control via an optical fiber. The array is part of a specialized circuit architecture that generates bursts of pulses while providing for core reset between pulses. The circuit will accommodate variations in pulse width, repetition frequency (prf… CONTINUE READING
