Startup Qblox has won the title of CES2021 Innovation Award honoree for their next generation of quantum control hardware: the Cluster Series. The award is a part of CES2021, the world’s most influential tech event. During the opening of the Netherlands pavilion and CES2021 kick-off on January 11th, Mona Keijzer, State Secretary for Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, congratulated Niels Bultink, CEO and cofounder of Qblox, for winning the award and consequently being “one of the most esteemed innovative entrepreneurs”.
“We’re here at CES partly to launch a device called the Cluster – and this is a device that is much smaller than any other solution for this control system,” said Niels Bultink during the digital kick-off of CES2021. The Cluster series is Qblox’s new series of their scalable and modular control system which has the capacity to control up to 20 qubits from a single device. The launch of this new series is what won them the CES2021 Innovation Award. It follows the news of the $6Mn in seed funding from the European Innovation Council – Horizon 2020 that Qblox secured in late 2020.
