End-users will have access to IQM Garnet, a 20-qubit quantum processing unit on Amazon Braket

Espoo, Finland, Palo Alto, Calif., 23 May 2024 - IQM Quantum Computers (IQM), a global leader in building quantum computers, today announced that IQM Garnet will be available to researchers, scientists, and developers to explore quantum computing through Amazon Braket, the quantum computing service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Available today, end-users of Amazon Braket have access to IQM’s high-fidelity 20-qubit quantum processing unit (QPU) based on superconducting transmon qubits. This is a significant milestone, representing the first time IQM quantum computers are available in a self-service, on-demand model via the cloud. Customers can also reserve dedicated access to the system via Braket Direct.


With this announcement, Amazon Braket is also expanding AWS Region availability to the AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region, making IQM's Garnet the first QPU available to AWS customers and hosted within the European Union.

IQM Garnet has a square lattice topology, enabling one of the highest levels of connectivity in order to run quantum algorithms with improved accuracy. In addition, the processor demonstrates a median two-qubit (CZ) gate fidelity of 99.51% across 30 qubit pairs, with maximum fidelity over a single pair reaching as high as 99.8%. 


“Onboarding to Amazon Braket is an exciting opportunity for us to demonstrate our superconducting quantum computers with high fidelities, enabled through our unique IQM tunable couplers. This combination of high throughput superconducting hardware and high fidelity of tunable couplers is designed to boost algorithm performance and provide high quantum volume, and full entanglement across the whole processor,” said Dr. Jan Goetz, Co-CEO and Co-founder of IQM Quantum Computers.


“Bringing IQM Garnet to Amazon Braket brings even more choice to AWS customers experimenting with quantum computing,” said Richard Moulds, general manager, Amazon Braket. “We’re excited to expand our commitment to EU customers with locally hosted hardware, addressing important data residency requirements. IQM Garnet expands possibilities for customers in the European Union, with a high-quality system designed to accelerate their research in quantum optimisation, simulation, and machine learning algorithms across various fields such as life sciences, chemistry, and other industrial applications.”
