Why are we building Deltaflow.OS®?
We are building Deltaflow.OS® as a common operating system for all types of quantum computers because it’s our mission to make quantum computing more useful far sooner than previously imaginable. This requires a multidisciplinary approach that integrates rapid advancements in both quantum software and systems engineering.
What is Deltaflow.OS®?
Deltaflow.OS® is Riverlane’s operating system helping quantum hardware companies to scale faster, reduce errors and implement practical quantum error correction. It consists of four modules: Decode, Run, Calibrate and Control.
Deltaflow.OS® has been developed in close collaboration with our hardware partners so that we make the most of each technology.
Deltaflow.OS is modular. As a hardware company, you can leverage any combination of our components to improve your existing solution. Deltaflow.OS is seamlessly adaptable to different hardware partners’ needs – it enhances your current hardware and software by removing one or more hurdles on your way to commercial quantum applications.
Deltaflow Control finally gives quantum hardware companies what they need in terms of performance and reliability. Through our unique architecture, scalability is baked into the design from the get-go. State-of-the-art verification and tracing techniques allow companies to be laser-focused on the physics instead of chasing control bugs. Deltaflow Control enables ultra low-latency operations that unblock error correction.
Calibration and tuning are important bottlenecks to scaling and reducing system errors. Together with our partners, we are developing automated coarse and fine-tuning frameworks that allow hardware companies to save valuable R&D time that is currently spent on manual calibration. Deltaflow Calibrate automatically sets up quantum hardware for maximum qubit fidelity.
It becomes a challenge for QPUs with hundreds of qubits to obtain desired performance and sustainable running costs. Deltaflow Run deploys algorithms and applications onto the QPU in a high-performance manner. It solves the complex problem of allocating classical and quantum resources optimally.
Practical error correction remains unsolved as decoding is fiendishly difficult. Our teams work on different aspects of practical quantum error correction, thinking comprehensively about the problem from application to hardware implementation. We work with hardware partners to optimise the design of their architecture for error correction and selected applications.
