Most quantum computing prototypes today are small and susceptible to errors with little evidence for broad business advantage. Utility-scale gate-based quantum computers with millions of qubits are 5-10 years away. The path to useful quantum computing clearly requires going beyond finer engineering: a reimagination of approach and technology is necessary. That's why we chose a hybrid analog and digital approach: analog quantum computing that can deliver value today, followed by a high-performance digital mode that provides the ultimate flexibility and quantum advantage.
QuEra is pioneering a utility-focused approach, to deliver value for customers today while preparing them for the quantum future. Starting from large systems engineered for a specific purpose, we introduce additional functionality at each development stage.

Step 3: Large-scale fault-tolerance
A modular design for the scalability of neutral atoms
Solving meaningful problems today in the analog processing mode
We designed our first machine to operate in the analog processing mode. Computations are continuous transformations of the internal quantum state. This way, gate errors don’t pile up as fast, and precise control over a large number of qubits becomes feasible. This delivers immediate value for a broad set of problems. We are working on adding universal gate-based digital processing mode, offering customers the best of both worlds.
