Traditionally Quantum Computer development has been done with a monolithic approach – one entity manufacturing and sourcing all components. This is costly, time-consuming and risky. In order to accelerate Quantum Computer development, IMPAQT envisions a modular approach: independent companies focus on different parts of the stack.
On the 11th of December 2020, members of the IMPAQT consortium signed an agreement to collaborate on ensuring that different building blocks of QC are interfaced well. In the future, this will allow Quantum Computer manufacturers to easily integrate their subsystems. The members of the IMPAQT consortium are:
- Orange QS – Integrated quantum system provider
- Qblox – Quantum control stack provider
- Delft Circuits – Cryogenic i/o quantum hardware provider
- Qu&Co – Algorithms for industry-relevant quantum advantage
Within IMPAQT, Orange QS will work together with the other consortium members to define and build well-interfaced building blocks of a quantum computer. If you want more information on the IMPAQT consortium, contact Amber Van Hauwermeiren.
