New quantum computing architecture could be used to connect large-scale devices


However, hardware that is resilient and extensible is needed to fulfil this promise. The need to efficiently connect quantum information nodes, which are smaller-scale processing nodes spread throughout a computer chip, is one obstacle to creating a large-scale quantum computer.

Conventional methods for transmitting electronic information do not readily translate to quantum devices because quantum computers fundamentally differ from classical computers. One condition, however, is certain: The conveyed information must be sent and received, whether through a conventional or quantum link.
