Digital superconducting systems based on Josephson junctions make generally use of the synchronous timing strategy. Today, one of its most promising applications is the high speed and high dynamic range signal sensing. A digital signal acquisition system should have a high resolution as well as a short sampling interval with a well known and constant time period. Short term clock fluctuations (clock jitter) induced by thermal noise can significantly disturb the system operation due to hazards of timing constraint violations. This uncertainty in the time period is currently a strong limitation for further improvements of fast signal sensing systems based on superconductive electronics. Recently, several theoretical and experimental studies describe the timing jitter in simple circuits, like Josephson transmission lines. In the presented work, we analyse different fabrication technologies for rapid single flux quantum (RSFQ) electronics and predict their timing jitter by the numerical solution of stochastic differential equations. We obtained a very good agreement between our simulation data and recent experimental results.
