The future Electron Ion Collider, to be located at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), will require a new short-pulse stripline kicker for the 150 MeV energy recovery LINAC. The pulse generator must produce ±50 kV pulses with widths less than 38 ns into a 50° kicker load and with low jitter. The power system must be highly reliable and robust to potential faults. Eagle Harbor Technologies (EHT), Inc. is leveraging our previous experience developing inductive adders to produce a high-voltage pulse generator that can meet the needs of the BNL kickers. In this program, EHT designed a single inductive adder stage and demonstrated the challenging pulse characteristics including fast rise and fall times, low jitter, and flattop stability while operating at the full current (1 kA). EHT will present the development status and output waveforms.
