High reliability high voltage fast switches

Abstract : In France, one joint program between Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (C.E.A.) for the research part and COGEMA for the industrial application is the development of the Uranium Vapor Laser Isotopic Separation (SILVA). The Power Electronic Laboratory from the C.E.A. in Pierrelatte is in charge of development on power supplies for Copper Vapor Lasers. For this specific application, the association of thousands of small standard components on printed circuit board is a cost-effective and reliable solution. We will explain why this solution is a costeffective and high-performance one for this application. Moreover, we will see that, in our particular case, the serial connection of a large number of components provides a very high reliability without over-cost.
