60. The PIXL instrument brassboard 28,000 volt power supply under development for JPL on the Mars 2020 mission.

The high voltage section is the small module in the right foreground with the blue connector attached. The tall unit with the brown insulating shield is the load also shown on the right side without the protective shield installed. This unit delivers 20 microamps to an x-ray tube and also powers the filament that provides the electron beam inside of the tube.
