    The usual LTD architecture [1, 2] provides sine shaped output pulses that may not be suitable in flash radiography, high power microwave production, z-pinch drivers, and certain other applications. A more suitable driver output pulse would have a flat or inclined top (slightly rising or falling). In this paper, we present the design and first test results of an LTD cavity that generates this type of the output pulse by including within its circular array some number of the third harmonic bricks in addition to the standard bricks.
