The article announces the success of Hypres, a superconducting microelectronics developer, in demonstrating the operation of its high-performance circuits in a Lockheed Martin compact cryocooler. It is indicated that the cryocooler design can be used for commercializing the digital-radio frequency (RF) product line of Hypres. Richard Hitt, chief executive officer (CEO) of Hypres, stated that the cryocooler's design is expected to be the size of a microwave oven. Use of the Hypres solution in U.S. military environments is mentioned.
