Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the several families of single-flux-quantum logic that have appeared in the literature as well as a new one designed in our Laboratory. Some of these have been evaluated in full-adder circuits and found to have approximately the same latency (time between input and output) as a voltage-state circuit. It is pointed out that the throughput of single-flux-quantum circuits can be much higher than with voltage-state circuits because of a much shorter reset time. The applications for these circuits are greatest in data-independent computation such as signal processing. The prospects and problems for these kinds of circuits are discussed both for low- and high-temperature superconductors.
