A compact, 17-stage Marx Generator, the MG17-1C-500PF directly generates RF by connecting the Marx Generator to the antenna though a high-voltage coaxial cable. With a ~200 ps rise-time, this generator is well suited for shock-exciting a variety of antenna geometries, including TEM horns, helical antennas, monopoles, and dipoles.


This generator is capable of delivering 255 kV into a matched load, or as much as 510 kV into an open circuit. Designed to deliver 4 J per pulse, it has an impedance of approximately 160 Ohm, resulting in a maximum peak power of approximately 400 MW.

  • Maximum open-circuit voltage: 510 kV
  • Maximum peak voltage into matched load: 255 kV
  • Maximum repetition rate: 10 Hz
  • Peak power (matched load): 400 MW
  • Energy per pulse: 3.8 J
  • Pulse rise-time: 200 ps
