 Project objective

Random Number Generators (RNGs) generate random strings of bits that are used as keys in data encryption. These keys work with encryption algorithms and are crucial to ensuring data security. However, most commonly used RNGs do not generate truly random numbers, so encrypted data and communications are increasingly vulnerable to hackers. The most secure solution for ciphers is the use of Quantum Random Number Generators (QRNGs). These use quantum physics principles for true randomness. There are a number of barriers for QRNGs to be used in the market. Some existing QRNGs are too slow (i.e. only Mbps), some are not high-quality and all of them are too expensive. Also, QRNGs are 100mm2 or more, too large for many applications. Quside will overcome these barriers with a QRNG chip called Qupic. It uses standard components and manufacturing procedures. It is high-quality and lightning-fast (up to tens of Gbps). The Qupic chip is so small that it can fit inside of a smartphone and so fast that it satisfies the needs of a data centre. Our manufacturing processes allow us to build this technology not just faster and smaller than our competitors, but also orders of magnitude cheaper. The result will be a permanently secure infrastructure for data and communications. The QRNG market size will approach $1 billion by 2020. Apart from security in servers, the cloud and connected devices, QRNGs are also used for complex simulations in scientific, financial and engineering applications. Our initial target markets will be: data centre security, random numbers as a service, IoT devices, large-scale numerical simulations and smartphones/laptops/tablets. Quside is a technology start-up spun out from ICFO–The Institute of Photonic Sciences in 2017, developing quantum and photonic technologies using a fabless business model. Qupic will boost our revenue from €5 k to €27 m and will allow us to increase our staff from 4 to 22 by 2022.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "QUPIC" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
