Attention is given to the existence of a formal analogy between semiconductive and superconductive circuits. It is shown by example that many semiconductor circuits have exact duals that are physically realizable in a superconductive technology. A sampling of circuits in both technologies is analyzed and compared on the basis of the analogy, and a FET circuit is described which is the analog of a known superconductive circuit. Finally, the heuristic value of the analogy is emphasized.
