When finally they develop into a working actuality, Quantum computer systems received’t be of a lot worth in the event that they merely sit there on their very own. Just just like the web, the worth is within the community. But proper now there’s scant expertise to hyperlink these highly effective units collectively.
That’s the place QphoX is available in. Thus Dutch startup has raised €2 million to attach Quantum computer systems with a ‘Quantum modem’.
The funding spherical was led by Quantonation, Speedinvest, and High-Tech Gründerfonds, with participation from TU Delft.
QphoX goals to develop the Quantum Modem it created at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) right into a industrial product. This networks separate processors collectively, permitting quantum computer systems to scale past 10’s or 100’s of qubits. Look out for the Singularity of us…
Simon Gröblacher, CEO and co-founder of QphoX instructed me: “It is the very same factor as a classical modem apart from quantum computer systems, so it type of converts electrical and microwave indicators to optical indicators coherently, so that you don’t do any of the quantum info within the course of. It then converts it again so you possibly can actually have two quantum computer systems discuss to 1 one other.
I famous that there’s a couple of sort of quantum laptop. He countered “We are in principle agnostic to what kind of quantum computer it is. All we do at the moment is we focus on the microwave part, so we can work with superconducting qubits, topological qubits etc. We can convert microwaves to optical signals and they can talk to each other. Currently, the only competitors I know are all the in the academic world. So this is we’re the first company to actually starts building a real product.”
Rick Hao, Principal with Speedinvest’s Deep Tech workforce, added: “ We want to invest in seed-stage deep technology startups that shape the future and QphoX is well-positioned to make a major impact. Over the next couple of years, there will be rapid progress in quantum computers. Quantum Modem, the product developed by QphoX, enables the development of quantum computers that demonstrate quantum advantage by combining separate quantum processors.”
