We have fabricated a prototype of interface devices between SFQ and CMOS circuits using HTS quasi-particle injection devices. By the injection of quasi-particles, the bridge area becomes resistive and high voltage appears at the drain electrode. As a test of device operation, we applied the signal of a function generator to the gate electrode and observed that the device successfully repeated on/off operation. We also succeeded in explaining the device characteristics by considering the thermal effects.
