This paper discusses the generation of subnanosecond pulses in the kilovolt range using TRAPATT diodes as overvolted, subnanosecond switches in a Marx circuit using the traveling wave method of erection. The design, operation, and simulation of the solid state Marx generator is discussed including the design of the signal probes and inherent signal distortion. A transient circuit simulation code was used to assist in determining the true operation of the circuit and to assist in designing additional circuits.
