    I am needing to design a circuit that can pulse a transducer at 1 MHz at 100V bursts with pulse width at 1 uS. This is for a personal project and I am not sure where to begin. I know that I will need a transistor to switch and also a way to provide the 100V. Maybe with a transformer. Does anyone already have a circuit capable of this? I am mainly a programmer and do not normally design circuits. If you do not have a circuit already, could you help me get started and give me some guidance? Thanks in advance!

    You could probably use a μcontroller for the pulse timing, but those voltages would burn it out. You would have to shield it from the transistor. As for how your going to generate a 1Mhz that is beyond me.

    Does anyone know what kind of transistor I could use and could I just make a simple circuit to do this? I do not think that I will need a microcontroller.

    What is the load impedance?
