Red, I now
interested in Bi-polar Solid State coils or known as ½ wave coils.
Always wanted an audio modulated Solid State coil so thought it would be
fun to combine BI-Polar Solid State with a Audio modulated coil. So the
name given to this creature is SABSSTC or Strictly Audio Bi-Polar Solid
State Tesla Coil. I had to build two driver cards as first was prototype
to get the bugs out. Once I blew up the MOSFETs, my second design was
more stable and now the coil can run 40 mins with no overheating or
stressing MOSFETs. SABSSTC is a low power coil as only requires 3
amps at 85vac into rectifier. There is no doubler just rectified mains
