Quantum computing has recently become an effective technology for tackling the drawbacks of microwave links where these were previously almost impossible. In that context, the quantum technology has made it possible not only to design a compact size system with improved performance but also to reduce the computational power and time. This presentation aims to provide a short overview through cases studies of the recent use of quantum computing in the design of the elements employed in the receiving section of a transceiver, such as active low-noise amplifier and passive phased-array antenna. This paper encourages the future studies in the domain of quantization effect of electromagnetic energy opening the way for other applications such as quantum communications and/or quantum radar schemes.
