Capacitor Cl is charged to 28 V through Rl and stores energy for firing the squib. A positive pulse of 1 mA applied to the gate of SCR1 will cause it to conduct, discharging Cl into the squib load XI. With the load in the cathode circuit, the cathode rises immediately to 28 V as soon as the SCR is triggered on. DiodeD1 decouples the gate from the gate trigger source, allowing the gate to rise in potential along with the cathode so that the negative gate-to-cathode voltage rating is not exceeded.
Squib-firing circuit

This circuit will reset itself after test firing, since the available current through Rl is less than the holding current of the SCR. After Cl has been discharged, the SCR automatically turns offa€”allowing Cl to recharge.
