Customers Will Be Able to Connect Directly to Honeywell’s Quantum Computing Systems
(TechRadar) Honeywell, in a recently released scientific paper, demonstrated its quantum charge coupled device (QCCD) architecture that represents a major technical breakthrough in accelerating quantum capability. Honeywell also announced that it is on track to increase the quantum volume of its quantum computer by an order of magnitude each year for the next five years.
When its quantum computer does become available, customers will connect directly to systems housed by the company and it even has partnered with Microsoft to make its systems available in Microsoft Azure Quantum.
The company also revealed that it has made strategic investments in two quantum computing software providers (Cambridge Quantum Computing and Zapata Computing) and that it will be partnering with JPMorgan Chase to develop quantum computing algorithms for the financial services sector.
Tony Uttley, head of Honeywell’s quantum solutions group, said the company has been developing the underlying technologies for quantum computing for years. In addition, Honeywell’s expertise in magnetic systems, ultra high vacuum hardware, lasers, precision control, and cryogenics supports quantum computing.
