A multichannel spark discharger and a circuit for its bench testing are described. The discharger has switched a capacitive storage device of 15 nf at 40 kv, which is close to the self-breakdown voltage. A graph of the switching time of the discharger for from one to nine channels is given. In the nine-channel mode, the maximum switched current is 209 ka and the switching time is approximately equals 20 nsec. The actuation delay is approximately equals 18 nsec with a spread of 2. 2 nsec.
