Invited Talk 3: qFirm: Digital Firmware for Classical Control of Qubits
Speaker: Farzad Fatollahi-Fard (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)

Presentation Language: English
Presentation Material: English

Abstract: Detail

As the field of Quantum Computing grows, various levels of abstraction must be developed to make it easier for users to adopt. Sitting in between a control processor and the digital/analog interface for a classical control system, we propose a layer called qFirm. This layer will provide the vital interface for converting quantum instructions into the analog signals sent to control the quantum device, as well as reading the results of the device. This will provide the essential glue logic for the classical control stack for a quantum control system.
