PASQAL, a tech company founded in 2019, known for its Programmable Atomic Quantum Simulators, collaborates with NVIDIA in building a Quantum Computing Center of Excellence featuring a cluster of 10 NVIDIA DGX A100 with NVIDIA InfiniBand, the world’s most advanced accelerator system incorporated with a compelling superspeed network. Pasqal announced the collaboration during a Press Release in Paris.
PASQAL is a tech company that uses Neutral Atoms in 2D and 3D arrays for Quantum devices. They are also a current member of the NVIDIA Inception program, a free program designed by NVIDIA to help start-ups evolve quickly through access to NVIDIA’s cutting-edge technology and specialists. While also providing a strong network of investors, creating opportunities and connections.
The Quantum Computing Center of Excellence will feature a cluster of 10 NVIDIA DGX A100 systems, the world’s first AI system built on the NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU, a system that provides highly unprecedented acceleration. The system is also equipped with NVIDIA’s InfiniBand Networking, a fully off loadable, in-Network Computing platform that enables unrivalled performance in various technologies such as high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), and hyper-scale cloud infrastructures.
Pasqal aims to bring a practical quantum advantage to its customers on real-world problems, especially quantum simulation and optimization. The cluster will add technological capacity as well as provide an advantage to its emulation system.
Furthermore, Pasqal aims to improve the development operations by increasing speed on quantum circuit simulations using state vector and tensor network approaches by orders of magnitude. Thus, the company will be making use of the NVIDIA cuQuantum software development kit, a collection of libraries and tools for quantum computing workflows.
