PERS CONFERENCE – Quantum Machineprovider of breakthrough quantum control solutions that accelerate the realization of practical quantum computers, announced today Alice & BobA cutting-edge quantum computer vendor with a mission to develop universal and error-free quantum computers, has selected Quantum Machines’ advanced quantum control platform, OPX+, to power their advanced quantum computers.
Alice & Bob have demonstrated the ability to build qubits that are resilient to bit-inverting errors, which occur when a qubit’s state changes accidentally due to external factors such as noise or interference. The company’s approach uses superconducting cat qubits, which their experimental evidence suggests are designed to eliminate bit-flip errors. This groundbreaking discovery provides a shortcut to developing a universal, scalable quantum computer, with potentially hundreds of times fewer qubits.
Quantum Machines OPX+ incorporates a unique Pulse Processor Unit (PPU) that integrates classical processing and flow control at the heart of a quantum control system, managing both quantum and classical operations of the same device. PPU enables the implementation of complex quantum error correction and error mitigation in real time. A unique quantum control platform, OPX was designed from the ground up to enable ultra-low latency quantum classical processing, dramatically accelerating quantum performance by an order of magnitude. Built to scale, this solution supports the need to manage the increasing number of qubits in an economical and efficient way.
“When evaluating system performance in real-world deployments, the most important criterion is the end-to-end functionality of the system,” said Theau Peronnin, co-founder and CEO of Alice & Bob. “In this regard, OPX Quantum Machines stands out with its outstanding real-time performance, smooth scalability and user-friendly interface. This capability is very important to us as we strive to realize our vision of developing a fault-tolerant quantum computer.”
“Alice & Bob is one of the few companies that has a clear vision of how to achieve quantum excellence,” said Itamar Sivan, co-founder and CEO of Quantum Machines. Their technology offers a way to bypass the difficulties encountered with quantum error correction and scaling to large fault-tolerant quantum systems. Working together, we aim to create shortcuts to quantum excellence – and advance the realization of practical quantum computers.”
The OPX Quantum Machines platform is a key supporter of quantum-classical integration. Earlier this month, it was announced that NVIDIA would integrate its advanced GPU technology with the OPX platform, giving quantum researchers more powerful tools to manage and optimize their designs and experiments.
