Quinas exhibits at UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase

Company in ChipStart UK incubator has new memory technology exploiting quantum phenomena.

Lancaster University spinout company Quinas Technology Limited showcased innovative new memory technology that exploits quantum phenomena at the UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase in London on November 2nd.

Quinas, which was recently chosen to join the UK’s first ever government sponsored semiconductor design incubator, ChipStart UK, is commercialising Lancaster’s ULTRARAM™ computer memory, which combines the best properties of DRAM and flash into a single device.

The Showcase was held in collaboration with Innovate UK, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme (UKNQTP).

ULTRARAM™ inventor, Professor Manus Hayne of the Physics Department at Lancaster University and Chief Scientific Officer at Quinas, says: “We are delighted to be exhibiting at the UK’s flagship quantum technologies event. ULTRARAM™ exploits quantum phenomena to achieve its contradictory capability to easily change very robustly stored data. It also has great potential for the very low temperature digital electronics that is needed for practical quantum computers.”

The Quantum Technologies Showcase is open to anyone with a vested interest in the UK quantum technology sector, including industry professionals, businesses, academics, government representatives and investors.

There were keynote speeches by the Minister for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) George Freeman MP, the Chief Executive of UKRI Professor Dame Ottoline Leyser, Tom Newby Deputy Director, Head of the UK Office for Quantum, DSIT, Jonathan Legh-Smith Executive Director, UKQuantum, Elham Kashefi, Chief Scientist, National Quantum Computing Centre and Tim Spiller, Director, Quantum Communications Hub.

The showcase also demonstrated the success and progress of UKNQTP, a £1 billion dynamic collaboration between industry, academia and government. So far, UKNQTP have invested almost £500m in UK Quantum projects, with a goal of £1b by 2024, including several hundred businesses from supply chain, end users and technology developers.

The showcase follows on from Quinas’ success in being chosen to join the UK’s first ever semiconductor design incubator ChipStart UK, a two-year pilot programme backed by the UK Government providing start-ups with the technical and commercial help they need to help bring new products to market.

Quinas is one of 12 companies chosen who will share in £1.3M of ChipStart funding under the National Semiconductor Strategy, which aims to provide support to start-ups as they grow into future global chip leaders.
