Ever since IBM announced a 65-qubit machine1 together with the software development kits and cloud access to quantum machines, the attractive potentials of various applications of quantum computing appear much more achievable than ever.2
But leveraging the power of a quantum computer implies the ability to control the qubits with the help of a signal generator. The signal generator helps program pulse sequences to serve as a control device that can modify a qubit’s state as required, which forms the basis for logical operations.
To this end, Zurich Instruments has designed the SHFSG Signal Generator—the first-ever solution for qubit control available on the market.
