Abstract

A theory of operation of transistorized Marx bank circuits has been formulated. It has been shown quantitatively that the current-mode second breakdown of transistors is the basic phenomenon involved. The analysis reveals that physical parameters, like the length of and the doping density in the epitaxial collector, the forward dc amplification factor, and the avalanche multiplication gain of the transistors, play important roles in the mechanism. The theory has been applied to explain a number of experimentally observed characteristics of the circuit.
