Quantum Machines (QM), a leader in processor-based quantum controllers, has announced the launch of Israel’s Quantum Computing Center (IQCC) today. This state-of-the-art facility is designed to support the global quantum computing industry and the academic community.

The center, established with the backing of the Israel Innovation Authority, resides at Tel Aviv University.

“Access to cutting-edge resources is vital in the global pursuit of practical quantum computing,” remarked Dr. Itamar Sivan, CEO and co-founder of Quantum Machines. “Presently, all the most advanced research facilities are restricted, offering limited access to outsiders. This creates a competitive barrier. We recognized that building the most advanced facility, fostering interoperability, modularity, and integration with high-performance computing (HPC) and the cloud, would be a game-changer. Our open architecture approach ensures continuous upgrades and scalability, keeping the facility at the forefront, propelling the entire ecosystem forward.”

The IQCC uniquely integrates the strengths of quantum and classical computing resources. It is the first facility worldwide to house various co-located quantum computers with different qubit types. All these machines leverage QM’s OPX control system and seamlessly integrate with on-premise supercomputing resources and cloud accessibility. Additionally, the center offers the world’s best-equipped testbed for developing novel quantum computing technologies.

A highlight of the IQCC is the inaugural deployment of DGX Quantum, a unified system for quantum-classical computing co-developed by Quantum Machines and NVIDIA. This system seamlessly integrates with a supercomputing cluster comprised of NVIDIA GPUs, ARM and AMD CPUs, all connected to AWS cloud platforms for remote access and additional cloud resources. The center also boasts QM’s new OPX1000 controller, designed for scaling to over 1000 qubits.

“Previously, a developer creating a quantum processor chip would need to build their own testing setup, incurring millions in costs,” explained Dr. Yonatan Cohen, CTO and co-founder of Quantum Machines. “We envisioned the most advanced facility imaginable, one that would attract global companies and researchers. Several enabling technologies didn’t exist yet, so we spent two years developing them alongside leading technology companies. Now, researchers can connect their chips to our testbed and benefit from the world’s most advanced setup, significantly accelerating their development process and reducing costs.”

Quantum Computing Center Technology

The IQCC boasts a powerful combination of quantum technologies: a 25-qubit quantum processor superconducting quantum computer manufactured by Quantware, and an 8-qumode photonic quantum computer by ORCA.

In the upcoming months, additional quantum processors and computers will be added to expand the center’s capabilities further. Users can also utilize advanced quantum software developed by Classiq to program and optimize their quantum algorithms.

The QBridge software solution, jointly developed by Quantum Machines and ParTec, will facilitate seamless hybrid quantum-classical workflows, bridging the gap between classical and quantum computing.

The IQCC welcomes researchers and developers of quantum computers from around the world. Quantum Machines aims to expedite the development of practical quantum computing by providing an open, cutting-edge platform for research and development. It also strives to foster collaborative projects with industry leaders, propelling the field forward.
