    Developments in Aluminum Trace Circuit Boards

    As you might expect, no two applications for aluminum trace circuit boards are the same and most often they are not even similar.

    While some customers are investigating frontiers in MEMS (Microelectromechanical systems), others are delving into the inherent superconductive properties at milliKelvin temperatures, while still others are exploiting the radiation response characteristics of aluminum. For the R&D personnel at Omni Circuit Boards, the requests have presented some interesting challenges.

    Why Omni Circuit Boards Were 1st to Produce an Aluminum Trace PCB

    Today's computing technology is rapidly outpacing the capabilities of standard, mass-produced printed circuit boards. That's why it was no surprise when the engineers at British Columbia based D-Wave Systems came to us looking for a unique product.

    Quantum Computer Developer Chooses Omni for Precision Manufacturing

    The technical expertise needed to build the world's first commercial quantum computer is immense, which is why D-Wave Systems Inc. turned to Omni Circuit Boards to help them take up the challenge.
