Linear transformer driver (LTD) is a novel fast discharge high pulsed power source. It can realize many LTD stages in series or parallel conveniently, and can directly acquire 100~200ns high power pulse. The pulse maybe realizes to directly drive load without any pulse compressing and forming unit. This paper introduces the latest development of fast LTD technology in abroad. The 100kV/500kA LTD stage with the rise time of 150ns has been designed. The stage is consisting of 20 discharging bricks in parallel. The simplified circuit model of LTD stage is given and the output parameters are simulated with universal circuit simulation software program, and the matched load current of 500kA and the rise time of about 150ns is obtained at the charging voltage of the capacitors about ±80kV.
