As the end of Moore’s law draws near, quantum technology provides the means to achieve breakthroughs in computing. The unique properties of superposition and entanglement enable previously unimagined performance in quantum applications like computing, communications, and sensing. As quantum research enters this new phase in physics and mathematics, you can use engineering to build real systems.
Quantum computing uses the properties of quantum superposition and entanglement to solve previously unsolvable problems. Keysight’s qubit control solutions and precise measurement instrumentation enable researchers to engineer and scale superior systems.
Many quantum-mechanical platforms, such as trapped ions, superconducting circuits, and silicon spins, can physically realize a quantum two-level system, or qubit. Keysight’s broad solution portfolio includes control and measurement solutions for the leading qubit technologies:
- silicon spin
- trapped ion

The complexity of synchronizing multiple control signals rises as the number of qubits increases. Leveraging an open field-programmable gate array (FPGA) architecture, Keysight’s modular and scalable solutions provide flexibility and low latency while optimizing cost and space.
Labber offers a complete, yet easy-to-use solution for instrument control and lab automation. Our software helps the quantum scientist or engineer maximize their experimental potential. Realize faster results with simple experimental set-up, intuitive visualization of results, and the efficient organization of collected data.
Quantum Benchmark offers an essential software layer for both makers and users of quantum computers to turbocharge the runtime performance of error-prone quantum computers. True-Q software tools deliver run-time error suppression, error-aware compilation, error diagnostics, and optimization to dramatically improve quantum hardware performance.
The software solves the mission-critical challenge of validating if quantum hardware will execute a user-supplied algorithm to a user-specified precision, delivering quantum advantage to its users. Quantum Benchmark builds proprietary technology based on years of research by several of the world’s leading experts in quantum computing.
Quantum Science is no longer a niche research area. Billions of dollars are being invested worldwide to harness the potential of the technology to solve hard problems. This explosive growth fuels the need for a trained workforce of scientists, engineers, and technicians. As universitities ramp up quantum courses, Keysight brings e-learning courses designed for engineers tasked with solving the challenges of quantum systems.
Keysight University has classes focused on designing large quantum systems and solutions that solve the most common problems.
