Interconnect properties position superconducting digital circuits to build large, high performance, power efficient digital systems. We report a board-to-board communication data link, which is a critical technological component that has not yet been addressed. Synchronous communication on chip and between chips mounted on a common board is enabled by the superconducting resonant clock/power network for RQL circuits. The data link is extended to board-to-board communication using isochronous… Expand

This work shows that the next major interconnect dissipations are in the electronic circuits for receiver amplifiers, timing recovery, and multiplexing, and it can address these through the integration of photodetectors to reduce or eliminate receiver circuit energies, free-space optics to eliminate the need for timing andmultiplexing circuits, and using optics generally to save power by running large synchronous systems.
