Cambridge Quantum Computing Announces Support for Honeywell’s Quantum Computer
(HPCwire) Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) announced that it has released a new version of its quantum software development platform t|ket⟩TM that is optimized for Honeywell’s trapped ion quantum processor.
A new optional python package, pytket_honeywell, adds support for Honeywell’s quantum processors to t|ket⟩TM and is the first software that enables users to transparently execute quantum algorithms on the Honeywell quantum processor, regardless of whether the original program was written using pytket, Qiskit, Cirq, Quil, or QASM.
Denise Ruffner, Chief Business Officer of CQC stated, “Along with version 0.4.6 of the core pytket package, this release provides specific compiler optimizations designed to get the most out of the Honeywell devices, including rewriting circuits to their unique gate set.”
“We are excited to open up Honeywell’s unique quantum computing capabilities to the t|ket⟩TM platform and look forward to applying it to business use cases in the short term,” said Tony Uttley President of Honeywell Quantum Solutions.
