The IMPAQT Consortium
Accelerating quantum computer development by integrating off-the-shelf components
The first project by the IMPAQT consortium was set up by independent companies dedicated to speeding up the process of manufacturing and integrating subsystems. IMPAQT members specialize in developing state-of-the-art components for QC’s and one of us specialized in quantum system integration. We ensure that different components of the quantum computing stack integrate well by standardizing the interfaces between components. The IMPAQT project resulted in a full-stack qubit device characterization setup in under 4 months, with components delivered by QuantWare, Delft Circuits, Qblox, Orange Quantum Systems and Qu&Co.
Following the successful first project, the IMPAQT consortium set up the Nano-NISQ project. This project aims to connect modular and scalable components into a 5-qubit quantum computer. Once that’s done, it will run quantum algorithms and its components can be benchmarked.
“A supply chain of specialized companies will accelerate the development of quantum computers.”
