RSFQ - Cell Library

Rapid Single Flux Quantum (RSFQ) logic is a superconductive digital circuit technique, in which the data are represented by the presence or absence of a flux quantum Φ0=h/2e (Planck constant h and elementary charge e) in a superconducting loop. The switching of RSFQ logic circuits between logical states is characterized by very high speed as well as low energy consumption. Due to the development of new cryo coolers as well as high frequency circuit packaging, this type of quantum electronic is on the border for applications. Thus the RSFQ is the most promising quantum electronics.
