Bluefors has introduced a new cryogenic platform that they call KIDE (meaning snow crystal in Finnish). This platform provides more cooling capability for larger chips. It also provide more flexibility. The picture on the right above shows how three of the hexagonal shaped units can be connected together for possible use in creating a three-way quantum computing cluster. IBM has announced it will be using this platform for its forthcoming IBM Quantum System Two series of machines. You can view the Bluefors news release announcing this platform here and a short video that provides additional views of it here.
