To meet high performance injection requirment, the extraction and injection kicker of the booster synchrotron of SRRC must be working in accordance with the injection frequency. If the operating timing of the extraction and injection kicker deviates too much from the booster master timing clock, the injection efficiency will be deteriorated. To prevent this situation to occur, the jitter of thyration driver of extraction and injection kicker related to that of the master timing clock must be small than +/- 1ns. A new thyration driver was designed using high performance Power MOSFET. The new thyration driver is capable of producing very small phase jitter and fast rise time. Results and measured performance will be presented in this paper.
