The tool tool was first announced late last year as part of the company’s larger Qiskit portfolio, which provides open-source tools for creating programs that can run on IBM’s cloud-based quantum devices.
The idea is to let users play around with pre-built components on the platform to produce state-of-the-art chips for superconducting quantum devices in a matter of minutes.
BM’s Qiskit’s team partnered with Chalmers University of Technology, which already has strong experience in building quantum test chips. The researchers were able to design a competitive eight-qubit chip using IBM’s platform, but in a record 30 minutes. It took another hour to run the design on a simulator, where the device performed as expected based on Chalmers’ previous experiments. (ZDnet)
The tool can be trialed there.
