The joint project QuMIC focuses on scalable control electronics for quantum technologies.
The QuMIC project focuses on the research of novel highly integrated (BiCMOS) computer chips at high frequencies (RF) and their hybrid integration with quantum electronics (ion trap and superconducting chips) towards compact multi-chip modules (MCM). This leads to a significant miniaturization of existing RF or drive electronics of quantum computers based on trapped ion or superconducting qubit technology. Thus, the project enables, among other things, to scale quantum computers towards a high number of qubits.
QuMIC includes the TU Braunschweig, Leibniz Universität Hannover and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), as well as the technology companies Infineon Technologies and Supracon. The novel BiCMOS chips of the collaboration are intended to reduce the size of the control electronics of quantum technologies such as ion trap computers by a factor of eight. To this end, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research is providing QuMIC with 4.4 million euros over three years.
