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.
As quantum technology moves from research to the engineering phase, countries need more engineers ready to master the scaling of quantum systems. These engineers need deep knowledge of quantum physics and expertise in electrical design and measurements. Keysight has designed just the right courses to impart RF, microwave, and measurement expertise to budding quantum engineers.

"My collaboration with Keysight and the Boulder Cryogenic Quantum Testbed has been instrumental in understanding the precision of microwave measurements at millikelvin temperatures. In just a little over a year, we've built a very effective collaboration at bringing high precision test and measurement techniques and calibrations to superconducting quantum systems."

"All quantum technologies require classical systems for control and readout. Keysight accelerates my research by providing the most advanced system, allowing my students to concentrate on what they are best at – that is science. As importantly, our close collaboration with Keysight ensures the products we develop together will enable next-generation experiments for the whole spin qubits community."
Prof. Michel Pioro-Ladrière, Institut quantique, Université de Sherbrooke
"The Quantum Engineering Toolkit from Keysight greatly helped us focus on quantum tech development rather than control hardware. It led us to rapidly kick-off our startup activities where we went from unpacking boxes to full qubit control in a few hours, literally!"
Dr. Julien Camirand Lemyre, President and CTO at Nord Quantique
"The Quantum Engineering Toolkit platform has proven to be a key instrument to benchmark SBQ’s quantum magnetometer electronics against state-of-the-art signal generators for quantum control. Through its tight integration with the Labber software, our testing and prototyping schedules have been shortened, while providing a simple platform for the quantum engineer's training. With quantum initialization, control, and readout schemes being only a click away, the QET has become our personal quantum engineering companion.”
