Our PINE system is the first quantum computer that fits inside two standardized 19-inch racks. Building on top of the ion-trap quantum computing platform pioneered in Innsbruck, Austria, tens of ion-qubits can be worked with. Following a modular approach, the individual solutions within the PINE system have already been used to realize a world-record of 24-qubit entanglement, realized error correction, and demonstrated the first universal gate-set for logical qubits – achievements at the forefront of international quantum computing efforts.
The system has been designed to target normal high-performance computing facilities, data centers, or even offices in mind. Operated from just a single wall-mounted power plug, the device does not require special cooling, vibration insulation, or other requirements typically associated with quantum devices.
We currently support up to 20 qubits. Quantum algorithms can be readily executed as we support a wide range of quantum software development kits such as Qiskit, Cirq, PennyLane, Pytket, … Thus, existing code based on any of these libraries can be readily used on our PINE system. The standardized interfaces allow you to run our quantum applications without any detailed knowledge of the underlying hardware.
To date, our solutions have been used as a testbed to investigate quantum benefits in the fields of chemistry, portfolio optimisation, risk analysis, quantum security and decryption. Should you have some particular use-case in mind, please let us know.
