Riverlane the Cambridge based Quantum company has been steadily working on a Quantum Operating system. In May they achieved funding of a £7.6m grant to build a Quantum Operating system and September showed the first “Hello World” moment. Now there is the public release of Deltaflow.OS.
The latest Riverlane milestone is the public release of the first version of Deltaflow.OS; ‘Deltaflow-on-ARTIQ’. The new product release has been built to enable quantum hardware companies as well as quantum algorithm and application developers to speed-up their research by making collaboration simpler and reduce down-time in labs. This version uses simulated hardware and ARTIQ (ARTIQ is a control system which is widely used in the trapped-ion community) as a backend.
The release of Deltaflow-on-ARTIQ marks a significant step towards Riverlane’s mission to build a quantum operating system that is high performance, portable across all qubit technologies and scalable to millions of qubits.
The vision behind Riverlane is to build an operating system that makes quantum software portable across qubit technologies. A technology that is scalable to millions of qubits; and, can garner the highest possible performance out of every qubit. Deltaflow-on-ARTIQ is our first step towards achieving this vision.
