Wiring between non-adjacent tiles in a low temperature package may be carried out by circuits laid out on the tile baseplate and by flexible interconnections between tiles and between tile and baseplate. This eliminates the blockage which might result if such connections had to pass across intervening tiles. A planar package for small (about 50-chip) Josephson systems is shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The tiles are the first level package. Adjacent tiles 1 are interconnected with a flexible chip connector 2. Chips 3 are connected to the tiles. A personalized baseplate allows direct wiring between any two tiles and serves as a second level wiring package. By using both X and Y wiring levels on the personalized baseplate 4 it is possible to have more than one "string" of tiles.
