Abstract:

PEOS technology scaling to the long conduction time greater than 200ns and 10-20 MA current levels required by the 10X machine is discussed. The approach taken is to employ the results of the electromagnetic numerical modeling we have performed for conduction times of 50 to 80 ns in constructing the functional dependence of the switch operation on its physical parameters. BLACKJACK 5 and ACE PEOS experiments as well as results from fully electromagnetic particle in cell simulations are compared with the heuristic ion piston model. Implications of this analysis on switch length, radius and density for the 10X machine are given.
