D-Wave systems is creating a new form of super computers called quantum computing. It is several orders of magnitude faster than current computer technology, and the market is mostly government agencies. To find an elegant solution for client D-Wave Systems, Mauk Design began by distilling the contents down to a prototype board allowed for a clean space, while also emphasizing the product that makes D-Wave unique.
