FormFactor’s quantum cryogenic measurement solution selected by Seeqc
(ZacksEquityResearch) FormFactor’s quantum cryogenic measurement solution was recently selected by a digital quantum computing company named SEEQC. The measurement solution includes the sub-50mK HPD Model 106 adiabatic demagnetization refrigerator as well as the PQ500 RF and DC probe socket. The solution further complements sub-10mK dilution refrigerators to speed up cryogenic test cycles by more than two times.
With FormFactor’s quantum cryogenic measurement solution, SEEQC aims to accelerate its quantum computing research and development program. SEEQC is already using FormFactor’s probe socket solution to remove wire-bonding for qubits, SFQ circuits and multi-chip modules to accelerate the process of device characterization for final quantum testing.
With the recent partnership, both companies strive to focus on addressing the challenges related to test and measurement in the emerging quantum computing industry. The latest collaboration with SEEQC bodes well for FormFactor’s growing efforts toward expanding its presence in the rising quantum computing market.
Apart from this recent move, FORM had last year released the HPD IQ1000, a scanning SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) microscope, which delivers cryogenic system integration and automation to help device designers accelerate both quantum research and higher-volume engineering.
