Simplicity and low parts count are key virtues to this high voltage amplifier. Optoisolators replace complex high voltage transistor biasing schemes. This amplifier employs only 2 optoisolators, 16 high voltage mosfets transistors, 2 low voltage ones, 6 linear IC's and a score of passive components. Yet it can amplify opamp signals to 5 kV peak-to-peak from DC to sine waves up to 20 kHz. Resistor feedback guarantees the fidelity of the signal. It can source and sink 10 mA of output current. This amplifier was conceived to power ion traps for biological whole cell mass measurements. It is a versatile tool for a variety of applications.
