Abstract

The AC power distribution system for a Josephson data processor is anticipated to require operation at relatively high current levels (>300 mA). Since current handling capabilities of contacts to the various metallurgy levels of Josephson devices are, in general, lower than the equivalent capacities of lines interconnecting them, it is desirable to design a distribution network which minimizes the use of contacts.
