  A 324MHz 30kW high-speed pulsed solid-state amplifier has been designed for use in a beam chopper at the Japan Proton Accelerator Complex (J-PARC). This paper discusses the various design challenges and presents the initial performance test results. In particular, the amplifier achieves pulse rise and fall times of less than 15 nanoseconds, is easily upgradeable in power, and withstands 100% power reflection without damage.
