Abstract

Progress toward a Josephson voltage standrd for fast dc measurements and ac waveform synthesis is described, including a version with SNS junctions operated at 11 GHz. A bias control circuit that achieves millampere drive capability, transient suppression, and submicrosecond settleing time is used for fast, automated measurements of A/D converter linearity, squarewave synthesis at 400 Hz, and a test for subnano volt accuracy
