High Voltage Switch
The High Voltage Switch is a high speed high voltage DC switch for cold plasma discharges made for the LaCPID project.
The HVS is a solid state switch with ability to switch voltages up to 15 kV and 0.5 A continuous and 24 A in short peaks. The maximum switching frequency is 750 kHz continuous and 3 MHz in short bursts. The turn on rise time is in the range of 4.5 to 35 nS, and the turn off fall time is as short as 10 nS, dependind on the load configuration.
