The Superconductive Circuit Board

    Development of Low Temperature PCBs

    Mid 2011 was the beginning of the collaboration between Omni Circuit Boards and D-Wave Systems to produce superconducting, low temperature printed circuit boards (PCBs).

    Development was driven by D-Wave’s need for low temperature PCBs which could provide mono-metal superconductive connection to their unique processors. The PCBs would operate at low-temperature, be solderable and be suitable for wire-bonding. The PCB would also withstand multiple temperature cycling from below 500 Millikelvin to 20C.
