hi yes you can carry that high a current pulse in a printed circuit, but you must use heavy copper traces, I would suggest 8 to 10 oz board with a .5 to .75 trace width. you also need lots of vias to secure the track phisicaly to the board and help carry the current. there are a few manufactures who make heavy copper that thick. I have a book on the subject, I have been doing heavy copper boards for 10 years. I sell the book to just cover my costs as I print only a limited number. It is available at megadawn.com there is also a book on high voltage printed circuit design. hope it helps robert
