QuantWare develops Tenor, a programmable 64-Qubit processor designed to maximize the Scalability of Superconducting Quantum Computers

Quant Ware Tenor

QuantWare, a TU Delft and QuTech spin-off that creates, builds, and manufactures scalable, superconducting quantum processors, has introduced Tenor, a novel processor with massively scalable technology enabling the commercialization of quantum computers with 64 completely programmable qubits. The company is working on technology to massively grow the number of qubits in a single processor to construct computers that can do practical quantum computation soon.

“The technology on which Tenor is built will massively scale the size of the devices available to the quantum market in the coming years. There are scores of great quantum computing solutions but there hasn’t been the tech available to enable them to significantly scale – until now.

Matthijs Rijlaarsdam, CEO of QuantWare.

QuantWare has invented a unique 3D technique that distributes connections vertically, allowing superconducting quantum processors to scale to thousands of qubits, paving the way for ‘quantum advantage,’ in which quantum computers outperform the most powerful classical computer.

Tenor is a big step forward in commercial quantum computing because it is the first commercially accessible gadget with this technology.

QuantWare continues to aim to become the “Intel of quantum computing” by supplying simple-to-use, increasingly powerful, and affordable quantum processors to organizations worldwide. QuantWare was chosen last year to supply quantum processing modules for Israel’s first fully working quantum computer.

Programmable qubits ideal for Quantum Error-Correction

‍The quantum processor has 64 fully controlled qubits, making it more than twice as large as the previous largest available quantum processor. These processors are ideal for sophisticated error correction techniques since the qubits are programmable. Such a design necessitated more connections per qubit than the commonly used fixed frequency qubits and could not be implemented at a scale of 64 qubits with standard planar devices.

QuantWare enables the quantum community to access these powerful devices by bringing their technology to market at a 10x cheaper cost than competing solutions.

“Similar to how the emergence of fabless companies revolutionised the semicon industry by significantly lowering the bar to entry, we will be able to provide the design elements and fabrication that will enable many more quantum startups to scale, innovate and compete.”
