1. A device for producing x-rays, the device comprising:
a high-voltage multiplier comprising a plurality of electrically connected rigid circuit boards that comprise an intermediate
circuit board orthogonally oriented to a first circuit board and a second circuit board, wherein the first circuit board and
the second circuit board are positioned in an opposing relationship to each other, and the high-voltage multiplier is coupled
to a filament transformer that is coupled to an x-ray tube for producing the x-rays.
