Abstract : This application discloses an analog-to-digital converter using superconducting interferometers connected in parallel, each interferometer being identical. The coupling of the analog signal to each successive interferometer is increased in the ratio of 1:2:4:8:16:32:, etc. The application of a pulsed power supply to the parallel connected interferometer generates output voltages on the interferometers. The output voltages are a Gray Code representation of the analog signal.
