OrangeQS supplies to HectoQubit/2 project

QuTech is building a full superconducting quantum computing system that will be made publicly available through QuTech’s Quantum Inspire cloud platform. OrangeQS is a supplier of the HectoQubit/2 consortium, contributing a framework to automate and maintain calibration, as well as device performance monitoring.

HectoQubit/2 (HQ/2) is funded by Quantum Delta NL under its Cat-1 program, and is a critical first step on the path towards the development of a 100-qubit quantum computer in Delft as planned within the European Flagship consortium OpenSuperQPlus, where TU Delft is one of the three demonstrator sites.

The project is being coordinated by QuTech and supported by a consortium of companies in Delft, namely OrangeQS, QuantWare, Qblox, and Delft Circuits.

Within the DiagnostiQ project, we have worked together with scientific coordinator and professor of Applied Physics at TU Delft Leonardo DiCarlo.

Professor DiCarlo states about HQ/2: “Within the European Flagship consortium focused on superconducting quantum processors, we are the one team embracing the 100-qubit target. We’ve stuck our necks out and said we’re going for it!”

OrangeQS will support the effort with a framework to automate and maintain calibration, as well as device performance monitoring. This contributes to further increasing the capabilities and performance of our automated testing software, an important component of our high-throughput test equipment which we deliver to organisations that work on 100-qubit scale quantum chips.
