Quantinuum, the quantum computing company formed from Honeywell’s technology with software from Cambridge Quantum Computing, is expanding its IBM Quantum Hub in the UK with the latest quantum computer technology.

This will give Quantinuum access to IBM’s latest systems, including the recently announced 127 qubit processor, ‘Eagle’, as well as to IBM’s quantum expertise and Qiskit, to drive and develop the quantum ecosystem.

IBM was already an investor in Cambridge Quantum Computing through IBM Ventures before the merger.

“We are excited to expand access to IBM Quantum hardware and Qiskit, providing our clients with solutions developed for state-of-the-art quantum computing hardware. We continue to utilize a broad range of quantum processors including IBM, given their position as a leader in superconducting quantum computers, a critical and important part of the growth in the capabilities of quantum computers,” said Ilyas Khan, CEO of Quantinuum.

“IBM has been a great advocate for the creation of a growing quantum ecosystem as well as an early investor in Cambridge Quantum and now Quantinuum. We look forward to opening up a wide range of possibilities to further advance quantum computing industry applications,” he said.

The new investment and business collaboration provides an example of how Quantinuum can work with a range of different quantum hardware.
