Pulsed Power Products


Silicon Power offers world leading technology in solid state high-speed, high voltage, and high-energy transfer switches. Beginning with the design of the constituent semiconductors, SolidTRON®, our focus is enabling system-level designs with unprecedented performance compared to other solid state thyratron, ignitron and spark gap.

Technical advantages

Our SolidTRON® based solutions offer:

  • di/dt >200kA/us demonstrated
  • Sub nanosecond jitter
  • Turn-on delays <100ns
  • Simple end-user gating (low power, TTL compatible triggers)


Our product line covers operational voltages from 4kV up to 60kV with applications including: linear accelerators, crowbars, radar, microwave, and particle beam kickers.

Many of our switches have been integrated into large systems such as Fermilab’s Muon g-2, switch cabinets encircled in red.
