Research Institution
Scaling up quantum computers is proving difficult due to the need for a scalable precision pulse generating platform. This proposal shows a scalable system architecture that packs 96 high resolution channels of multiple electronic outputs, 1 high speed analog, 1 high speed shaped radio frequency pulse, and digital serializable outputs that are each synchronized precisely in each commonly available commercial chassis. Multiple chassis can be synchronized, allowing an order of magnitude increase in the size of quantum computers from the present state of the art. The phase 1 proposal is for the detailed design of hardware, firmware, and software for such an apparatus.
