Superconducting digital electronics, based on the Josephson effect, in the former Soviet Union - from 1967 to 1991.

The research efforts by several academic and industrial groups included the catch-up work on latching logic and memory, original design of non-latching Josephson cryotrons, and the conceptual development of single-flux-quantum devices circuits. The latter work has eventually led to the invention of reversible parametric-quantron circuits in 1975, and ultrafast RSFQ logic in 1985.

A brief review of the work on superconducting digital electronics, based on the Josephson effect, in the former Soviet Union - from 1967 to 1991.
