  As part of the upgrade project for ions the rise time of the injection kicker system into the SPS needs to be improved. The changes being studied include the addition of a fast Pulse Forming Line parallel to the existing Pulse Forming Network for the fast kicker magnets MKP-S. With the PFL an improved magnetic field rise time of 100 ns is targeted. Two different configuration utilizing a 2nd thyratron or two fast diode stacks have been outlined in the past. This paper presents the recent progress on the analogue circuit simulations for both options as well as measurements carried out on a test system. Modelling, optimization and simulation of the entire system with diodes and a second configuration with two thyratron switches are outlined. Measurement results are given and the feasibility of the upgrade is discussed.
