You may not recognize the name Keysight Technologies as a participant in the quantum industry. But perhaps you would recognize them if we told you they are a direct descendent of the original Hewlett-Packard (HP) company that was founded in a garage in Palo Alto, California in 1939. The original Hewlett-Package product line consisted of electronic test and measurement equipment and Keysight is still producing those types of products today as a spinoff of the original HP.
Keysight is now getting involved with providing equipment, tools and support for the quantum industry. This effort has been accelerated with two acquisitions. The first occurred in August 2016 with the acquisition of Barcelona based Signadyne which made test and measurement equipment for quantum optics applications. And the second was completed in March 2020 with the acquisition of Cambridge, Massachusetts based Labber Quantum, a start-up out of the MIT EQuus Group that provides software for instrument control, signal generation, qubit calibration, and device testing. Today, they are building upon the technology obtained in these two acquisitions to provide a broad portfolio of solutions for the quantum market.
