Re: [TCML] Building a pulse generator
Accel Super Coil (JEGS.com) works very well and supply up to 50 kV from a 2
uF cap when used with a standard 120 vac power line. If you contact me
off-list I can email you the schematic file for this circuit. You can vary
your input voltage to set the output voltage level. Also, this is a
capacitor discharge circuit so your input and output energy (in milliJoules)
is much higher than the 555 circuit you listed.
