Abstract: The Generation of self-supplied variable step up DC voltage proposed is originates from conventional Marx generators. This recently developed Marx generator circuit employs high voltage (HV) Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET) as switches and series connected diodes as isolated components. Optic coupler are use to isolate and protect the damaging of low voltage deices from HV circuit. Project Results of 10 stages having pulses of 12v, 10ms and 50Hz are accustomed in project. The switching of MOSFET will be done and controlled by matrix keyboard and programmed microcontroller such that, we can get variable step up DC voltage. This topology of the circuit generates pulses with fast rise time and allows easy variable step-up output voltage. In addition, as there is use of microcontroller the circuit is capable to adjust positive or negative pulse Width, dead-time between two pulses. Index Terms—
