Quside announces today availability of its new chip-based quantum entropy source technology, the QN 100, for ultrafast and high-quality random number generation.

Barcelona (Spain) – February 21, 2022, The new QN 100 will give Quside’s customers access to enhanced randomness capabilities for the on-going transition to quantum-safe cybersecurity and efficient randomized accelerated computation.

Quantum entropy source for post-quantum encryption

Entropy sources are fundamental for the generation of random numbers, which in turn are central for all cybersecurity protocols. If random numbers are not unpredictable, then no truly safe security can be achieved. Therefore, producing high-quality random numbers is a prerequisite. In 2022, new post-quantum encryption and authentication standards will be published and large-scale investments in quantum communication infrastructures consolidated, both at the European (EuroQCI) and international level.

The QN 100 chip will allow Quside to further drive its mission to provide the highest performing, scaling and quality of quantum-enhanced randomness sources to its OEM customers and partners, who embed them to deliver the strongest cybersecurity products for their global customers.

More than 1 Gbps

The QN 100 can support the generation of more than 1 Gbps of random digits. With this new unique resource, Quside will release new products in 2022, achieving more compact and diverse form factors with increased performance. The products will not only focus on their cybersecurity offerings, but also on their new compute acceleration offerings for randomized workloads for optimization, simulation and prediction, in markets such as finance, insurance, science, energy or pharma.

The QN 100 chipset is produced in a pure-play foundry, which allows Quside to a reliable production at scale of its quantum entropy sources, and confidently deliver to its customers.
