With a dedicated team of scientists, engineers and developers we are pushing quantum technology to support scientists worldwide with our scalable qubit control and readout equipment from ultrastable DC to 18.5 GHz for academic and industrial quantum labs. The Qblox (www.qblox.com) control stack combines unlevelled noise performance, low-latency arbitrary control flows and can be scaled up to 100s of qubits. Our company is based in the Netherlands as a spinoff of QuTech, which enables us to implement the latest scientific insights and take a position upfront in the worldwide race towards quantum advantage. Using the technology developed at QuTech as a springboard, the Qblox team has fundamentally reimagined the architecture of quantum control to create a single integrated control stack that provides all the functionality needed to manipulate and measure quantum computers. The Qblox architecture speeds up calibration routines by orders of magnitude, saving research teams significant amounts of time and money. The Qblox team is interested in meeting experiment quantum physicists to learn about their applications and how Qblox could support their scaling needs.

Quantum Machines (QM) envisions a new technological age. A time when quantum computing revolutionizes entire industries, solves global problems, and drives unprecedented innovation. That’s why we made it our mission to build the Quantum Orchestration Platform (QOP): a complete, end-to-end hardware and software quantum control solution that brings out the best of any qubit technology.

QM’s QOP is the choice of the top experts around the globe. It fundamentally redefines the architecture of the quantum control stack and lets you achieve results faster than ever with the most powerful and flexible Pulse Processing Units. The full-stack hardware and software platform offers unparalleled quantum-classical integration. Teams can now implement and accelerate even the most challenging quantum algorithms imaginable right out of the box. From complex multi-qubit calibration to quantum error correction, with QOP you write your sequences as easily as writing pseudocode and run them with the industry’s lowest feedback latencies and the fastest runtimes. 

Built on an architecture that scales into 1000s of qubits and is designed to match your needs at any QPU scale, the QOP allows for unprecedented advancement and speed-up of quantum technologies.
