NSWCDD

A high voltage circuit is provided for electrical pulse generation. The circuit includes an input voltage supply, a ground potential, a difference load, inverting and non-inverting Marx bank circuits connected respectively to output voltage nodes. The voltage supply has positive and negative terminals, with ground connecting to the voltage supply at the negative terminal. The output voltage nodes connect to the load. The inverting Marx bank circuit has a first n-plurality of stages in parallel, connecting at a first stage to the positive terminal and at a last stage at the inverting output node. The non-inverting Marx bank circuit has a second plurality of stages in parallel, connecting at a first stage to the positive terminal and at a last stage at the non-inverting output node. The load combines the inverting output voltage of minus n-times the input voltage with the non-inverting output voltage of plus n-times the input voltage for a total of 2n-times the input voltage.
