From Electronic Specifier, September 2, 2022: Electronic Specifier’s podcast talks with Gustavo Cancelo, Lead Engineer at Fermilab about a project that is developing new control electronics for quantum computers known as QICK. Developed by a team of engineers at Fermilab in collaboration with the University of Chicago, the Quantum Instrumentation Control Kit provides computing experiments with a new control and readout electronics option that will significantly improve performance while replacing cumbersome and expensive systems.

From the Polsky Center, July 26, 2022: Fermilab’s quantum ASIC group leader Shaorui Li founded Lismikro, a new start-up dedicated to developing innovative low-power microchip controllers to solve the hardware bottleneck and unleash the full potential of quantum computers. Lismikro was awarded a $200,000 co-investment from the Polsky Center’s George Shultz Innovation Fund and is capable of scaling the control electronics beyond today’s 100 qubits for superconducting, ion trap, and photonic quantum processors.

From Radiology Business, July 21, 2022: Read more about the research collaboration between NYU Langone and SQMS in a pilot program which will pair two young researchers from each institution. The aim of the program is for researchers to develop algorithms used by future SQMS quantum computers to make accurate and rapid estimations of multiple tissue properties from MRI scans.
