Title: Superconducting flux flow devices, digital circuits and memories

Abstract

Flux flow based devices have advanced to the point where real digital circuits can be considered that have attractive speed and power properties. An ECL-like logic family has been developed with sub-10 ps gate delays with fan-outs of 5 or more. Adders with 25 ps delays and 30 nW static power dissipation have also been demonstrated. These logic families enable a hybrid memory concept with extremely low power needs and access times of a few hundred ps.
