What is Qibolab?#


Qibolab is the dedicated Qibo backend for quantum hardware control. This module automates the implementation of quantum circuits on quantum hardware. Qibolab includes:

  1. Platform API: support custom allocation of quantum hardware platforms / lab setup.

  2. Drivers: supports commercial and open-source firmware for hardware control.

  3. Arbitrary pulse API: provide a library of custom pulses for execution through instruments.

  4. Compiler: compiles quantum circuits into pulse sequences.

5. Quantum Circuit Deployment: seamlessly deploys quantum circuit models on quantum hardware. 5. Emulator: seamless emulation of quantum hardware based on a emulator backend equipped with various quantum dynamics simulation engines.


The main components of Qibolab are presented in Elements description
