Abstract:

An analog-to-digital converter using superconducting interferometers connected in parallel, each interferometer being identical. The coupling of the analog signal to each successive interferometer is increased in the ratio of 12481632. etc. The application of a pulsed power supply to the parallel connected interferometer generates output voltages on the interferometers. the output voltages are a Gray Code representation of the analog signal.
