QuantrolOx launches new product, partnership with Qblox

QuantrolOx and Qblox
By Dan O'Shea posted 10 Aug 2023

QuantrolOx this week unveiled a new product, Quantum Edge, which automates the tuning and optimization of superconducting quantum computers, reducing the time for fundamental experiments like resonator and qubit spectroscopy to seconds, and making complex tasks like randomized benchmarking much easier. the company said.

That news comes the same week as Qblox, which provides modular qubit control stacks, announced a partnership with QuantrolOx, that will see the partners’ solutions combined with the aim of speeding up their research into building quantum computing systems that are both stable and scalable in a modular way. 

More specifically, the companies said that combining QuantolOx’s software and Qblox’s stack will enable automated tuning of QPUs, allowing for vast improvement over a process of qubit tuning, calibration, and optimization that otherwise can require years of learning, and hours or days to complete individual tasks. The new partners added that their respective products have been tested together successfully at the Bluefors lab at QuTech at TU Delft. 

Live demonstrations of the joint solution are planned for the SQA Conference in Munich at the end of this month, and at IEEE Quantum Week in Seattle next month. Online demos will be available on request, the companies said.

QuantrolOx, a spin-out from Oxford University that later relocated to Finland, raised £1.4 million in seed funding in early 2022. The company’s co-founder and CEO, Vishal Chatrath, was a featured speaker at the IQT Nordics conference back in June. Qblox, a firm located in Delft, the Netherlands, also was at the IQT Nordics event, and exhibited at the IQT conferences in The Hague and Canada this year. The company was last seen partnering with SemiQon to earn a European Innovation Council grant for a 30-month project focused on improving qubit quality.
