At this moment, there is a worldwide race to build a quantum computer.
By harnessing the laws of quantum mechanics this fundamentally new computer will solve problems that cannot be solved with current and future ‘classical computers’. A quantum computer requires a control system to interface between the classical world and the quantum bits (qubits, the fundamental building blocks). This is needed to generate pulses in the RF-domain to realize quantum phenomena like superposition and entanglement within these qubits. Right now, prototype quantum computers use general-purpose RF equipment to make this control system. However, as the number of qubits in the near future grows from a handful to thousands, the control systems grow out of hand in complexity, size and cost.
To overcome these problems, QuTech (a collaboration between TU Delft and TNO), has developed several electronic instruments dedicated for this task. Qblox makes these systems available to the market and ambitions further development to control a 1000-qubit quantum computer.
