Positioned as a drop-in replacement for thyratrons/PFNs and crowbars, Diversified Technologies Inc.'s PowerMod solid-state switch modules feature variable pulse widths up to <15s and can drive up to 5kA peak, enabling them to be used as hard switches or to drive pulse transformers.

The devices are available in 3kV modules which can be connected in series up to 200kV. They feature a typical rise time of 300ns and a flat top pulse without overshoot or ringing.

They are claimed by the company to be immune to arcing, emissions, and other lifetime limiting factors associated with convention vacuum tubes.

The PowerMod solid state switches are priced at $7,500 per 3kV module.
