Silicon-based quantum computing company Equal1 says it is the first company to demonstrate a fully integrated quantum processing unit operating at 3.7 Kelvin. Equal1, a spin-out from University College Dublin (UCD), has made what it’s referring to as a “major breakthrough” for the quantum computing industry. It announced today (13 May) that it is the first company to demonstrate a fully integrated quantum processor unit (QPU) operating at 3.7 Kelvin. Founded by Dirk Leipold, Mike Asker and Prof R Bogdan Staszewski, Equal1 is split between Dublin and Fremont, California. The company was named NovaUCD’s spin-out of the year in March. Its finding addresses one of the biggest challenges in quantum computing: scaling the number of qubits so that a quantum computer can solve real-world problems. Equal1’s quantum processing unit has patented...
