ScandiNova is by its break-through technology a world leader in pulsed generators for high power, so called modulators. The company has its head-office in Uppsala, Sweden and has established a global network of collaborations with highly skilled and experienced partners covering industry, academia and research organisations such as CERN in Europe, Lawrence Livermore and Brookhaven National Laboratories in the US.
The modulators, which are based on a semi-conductor technology, have a key function in several scientific applications, in cancer treatment, industrial X-ray, scanning of goods, sterilization and in other industrial applications. More than 95% of the production is exported to clients in 30 countries, mainly in Europe, Asia and North America. The company is rapidly growing, currently there are 40 employees and we are now looking for additional team members within many areas.
The vision is to lead the development and be the No 1 supplier within the pulsed power industry.
ScandiNova Systems AB was founded in 2001, by people with long commercial and technical experience in pulsed power applications i.e. Radiotherapy, Radar, industrial X-ray, research accelerator systems etc. The Company has its location in Uppsala, Sweden, close to the International airport of Stockholm (Arlanda).
“Excellence in Pulsed Power” – means providing high quality pulses created by reliable and safe solid state technology. This has been the mission for ScandiNova Systems AB since the company was founded in 2001.
High quality pulses are required in many different applications like Radiotherapy, Cargo scanning, Industrial X-ray, E-beam sterilisation, RADAR, Pulsed Electric Field processing and Scientific accelerator systems i.e. Synchrotron Light Sources and Free Electron Lasers.
Typical Voltage range of pulses is 1 kV – 500 kV and Current 0,1 – 10.000 A. Many applications are using pulse widths in the range from 0,1 – 100us, but some applications like broadcasting and neutron spallation sources are operating in the range 1 – 3,5 ms. The pulse repetition is typically in the range 1-1000Hz, but even several kHz operation is possible for special designs.
