Introducing QuantumPro

QuantumPro is the EDA industry's first integrated workflow tailored for the seamless design of superconducting qubits. Say goodbye to the challenges that have plagued superconducting qubit developers with lengthy and expensive development cycles, along with the hassle of navigating multiple tools. QuantumPro introduces an elegant solution that consolidates five essential functionalities into the PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2024 platform. This comprehensive suite encompasses schematic design, layout creation, electromagnetic (EM) analysis, nonlinear circuit simulation, and quantum parameter extraction – a combination never before available in one place.

Breaking down the barriers that once hindered mainstream microwave engineers from venturing into the quantum realm, QuantumPro serves as the bridge that unites the domains of quantum and microwave engineering. By intelligently translating traditional microwave outputs into easily adjustable quantum parameters within the platform, QuantumPro empowers engineers to effortlessly fine-tune their quantum circuits.

Solutions for Superconducting Quantum Systems

Keysight EDA tools enable your team of quantum hardware engineers to streamline their workflow and accelerate the development of quantum chips using a cost-effective electromagnetic simulation approach based on the method of moments. Our state-of-the-art nonlinear circuit solver delivers extensive analysis of the power-dependent performance of your quantum chips, giving you unparalleled insights. 

Build Your Quantum Chip Easily in ADS

We have recently incorporated a library of quantum layout components into PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2023 Update 2.0.  The library encompasses numerous frequently used quantum designs including transmons and co-planar waveguide (CPW) meanderline resonators. Its introduction facilitates the creation of quantum chips from within the ADS layout environment, with each geometrical feature of the chip being represented as a parameterized object that can be easily adjusted and optimized. The CPW components within the library have built-in airbridges that play a crucial role in preventing the propagation of the CPW common mode.

Designing for Superconducting Qubits

Superconducting qubits are one of the promising scalable quantum hardware technologies. Our electromagnetic solution, using the method of moments, allows for a cost-effective electromagnetic simulation that accelerates the design cycle of superconducting qubits. The method of moments, instead of solving for the electric field in the full volume, solves only for the currents on the metal surface, significantly cutting the computational cost.  

Additionally, we enable seamless tuning of qubits and resonators through co-simulation and parametric analysis, respectively.

Designing for Quantum Amplifiers

We streamline the design of quantum amplifiers, the critical blocks on the output chains of quantum systems that improve readout fidelity, through our market-leading nonlinear circuit design environment (harmonic balance and X-parameters, a trademark of Keysight).

Our powerful harmonic balance solver can handle the design of your amplifier, whether it's based on just a few Josephson junctions or thousands of them, delivering detailed analysis of the amplifier's performance, including gain profile, gain ripples, mixing products, quantum efficiency, and gain compression. Additionally, PathWave ADS enables the examination of how the amplifier performs when cascaded with other blocks such as circulators, allowing for a thorough investigation of its overall functionality.
