We present a design framework of a high-end server based on Single-Flux-Quantum (SFQ) circuit technologies. The server proposed here has multiple microprocessors and memories, which are mounted on a single board or package and are connected each other by SFQ interconnection switches. The extremely large bandwidth up to 100 Gbps/channel in the interconnection will be realized because of high throughput nature of the SFQ circuits. SFQ memories or Joseph-son-CMOS hybrid memories are employed as the shared memory of the multiprocessor. The SFQ microprocessors are constructed based on the complexity-reduced (CORE) architecture, in which complexity of the system is eased in exchange for using a high clock rate of the SFQ circuits. The processor is so-called Java-processor that directly executes the Java Byte Codes. Assuming a proper advancement of the Nb/AIO/Nb integrated circuit process technology, we have estimated that the power consumption of the server system including a cryocooler is reduced by a factor of twenty as compared to the future CMOS system with the same processor performance, while the SFQ system has 100 times of magnitude larger memory-processor bandwidth.
