FormFactor adds Dilution Refri –

LIVERMORE, Calif. and WOBURN, Mass., June 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FormFactor, Inc. (FORM, Financial), a leading provider of semiconductor test and measurement, today announced the immediate availability of cryogen-free (DR) dilution refrigerators. These systems are capable of cooling to ultra-low temperatures below 10 millikelvin, temperatures required for the operation of superconducting quantum computers. FormFactor, now the largest commercial DR provider in the United States, has acquired the DR product line from JanisULT (Woburn, MA), a recognized leader in high-quality DR technology. According to International Data Corporation (IDC), investment in the quantum computing market will grow at a 6-year (2021-2027) CAGR of 11.3% and reach nearly $16.4 billion by the end from 2027.*

FormFactor Dilution Refrigerators offer:

  • Cryogen-free operation with push-button cooling automation
  • Extensive options include probe socket test interface, magnetic shielding, low noise, low vibration, large sample space, and multiple ports for wiring and optics
  • Cooling power ranging from 250 to 600 microwatts at 100 millikelvin, with a roadmap for higher cooling power for large numbers of qubits
  • FormFactor’s established international customer support infrastructure

Dilution refrigerators join FormFactor’s innovative suite of cryogenic products and services designed to accelerate quantum research and commercialization.

  • High throughput cryogenic probe for wafers and chips such as IQ3000, reducing device characterization time to hours instead of days or weeks
  • Adiabatic Degaussing (ADR) refrigerator cryostats for qubit preselection, ensuring known qubits before deployment in a DR
  • RF and DC cryogenic probe interface, enabling rapid testing by eliminating days of wafer cutting and wire binding
  • Cryogenic testing services at the Advanced Cryogenic Laboratory located in Boulder, Colorado, providing immediate access to wafer-scale data

“It is critical that we continue to advance quantum development, said Dr. Celia Merzbacher, executive director of QED-C, the Quantum Economic Development Consortium. “FormFactor contributes to the development of the quantum ecosystem, which requires overcoming technological barriers, creating strong supply chains and ultimately meeting growing needs and markets.”

“With the addition of these DR systems, FormFactor not only expands its cryogenic capabilities for quantum technology, but also expands its customer relationships with world-renowned companies and research centers,” said Amy Leong, vice- Senior President and Managing Director of Emerging Growth Business. Unit to FormFactor. “We look forward to building on these projects and providing vital solutions to quantum computing challenges, from the research lab to high-volume manufacturing.”
