At present, the vast majority of quantum computer research and development teams are still using commercial instruments to build their own quantum computer control system. Because traditional scientific instruments are only responsible for a single signal output or acquisition task, a series of problems such as high cost, poor compatibility, functional redundancy and difficult integration arise.
Aiming at this technical problem, the original quantum makes innovative use and development of semi-conducting and superconducting quantum bits, and develops a compact and efficient quantum computer control system, OriginQ Quantum AIO, which integrates the functions of all quantum computing control systems into a single computer. Quantum chip controlled in the machine.
Kong Weicheng, chairman of Quantum Origin, introduced that if the quantum chip is the "brain" of human beings, the quantum computer control system is like the "backbone" of human beings, and the quantum software, application and language are equivalent to "flesh and blood". Quantum computer control system is an indispensable part of quantum computer, which can maximize the performance advantages of quantum chip.
It is reported that the original quantum measurement and control integrated function, which is officially launched, can provide the key signals needed for the operation of quantum chips, and also process the information returned from quantum chips to perform the compilation of quantum computer programs. It will be mainly used in the testing research of quantum chip and the principle construction of quantum computer, providing the operating environment and interface of quantum chip, providing the signal generation, acquisition, control and processing required by quantum chip, and applied in the fields of precision measurement, basic scientific research, radar detection and so on.
Kong Weicheng revealed that based on the development of the control system, a prototype quantum computer with 30 bits of quantum bits is planned to be launched in the next three years or so.
Guo Guangcan believes that besides chips and control systems, there are many quantum elements needed for a truly useful quantum computer. The development of this quantum computer control system is an important small step for a vector subcomputer.
