Abstract:

This project involves collaboration between industry Boeing Hypres to examine the potentials of superconductive electronic SCE technology for the realization of a radio frequency RF analog to digital converter ADC that will meet the rigorous requirements of a direct RF to digital receiver intended for communication applications. Software defined radio SDR systems will use this device to enhance system performance and provide reconfigurable features. Superconductive electronic SCE technology possesses a set of characteristics uniquely suitable for the implementation of analog to digital conversion and digital signal processing DSP circuitry. This technology incorporates especially high switching speed, ultra low power, natural quantization, quantum accuracy, high sensitivity, superior filter performance, and low thermal noise. Both military and commercial communication applications will benefit immensely from a flexible, reconfigurable, multi-standard, multi-mode, multi-band communication system.
