Abstract

In this paper we present measurements with a pulse-driven AC Josephson voltage standard (ACJVS) that uses a ternary arbitrary bitstream generator as the bias source. From these measurements we conclude that the circuit is operational for voltages up to 220 mV rms. We present a measured spectrum and operating margins for different voltages.
