    Up to now, the Square Pulse LTDs consisting of only 1st and 3rd harmonic bricks were developed and tested [1]. At the same time, discussions with pulsed power scientists indicated that the Square Pulse LTDs with additional 5th harmonic bricks might be even more interesting for some applications. Such LTDs could produce output pulses with a faster rise time and most importantly a flatter and longer length pulse top. In the present report we describe the Square Pulse LTDs, including 5th harmonics, and analyze their benefits and possible drawbacks.
