    A synthesizer of precision AC waveforms based on a SINIS Josephson junction array has been developed. The array is divided into 15 segments in a binary series and the segments are individually biased using a high speed bias source with a 100 ns rise time. The design considerations and accuracy limitations of the system are discussed and comparisons between the synthesizer and thermal converters are presented.
