In Josephson technology, Star Drivers are known for providing a plurali of outputs to other circuits. The Star Driver of Fig. 1 consists of a direct coupled (DCL) OR gate Q1 and an injection AND device Q2 the symmetric input C of which is externally provided. A resistor R isolates Q1 from Q2. The basic circuit is shown in Fig. 1 with a fan-out of 4, while the details of Q1 are shown in Fig. 3.
