Abstract

This article relates to a latch which is powered with bipolar AC currents. The circuits combine a Josephson latching-logic circuit with a temporary information storage ring. The object is to store information in the latching-logic circuit during the powered portion of a logic cycle, and in the storage ring during the part of the cycle in which the latching-logic circuit resets and the power supply changes polarity. A working circuit must contain the means for transferring information between two storage elements and means for changing the stored information.
