EE4575 Electronics for quantum computation
Topics: Concepts of quantum computing with focus on practical implementation for a quantum computerThe goal of this course is to introduce the students the overall system of a quantum computer, focusing on the classical hardware and software infrastructure required to build a quantum computer together with the quantum hardware. This course complements the course Quantum Hardware (AP3292) that covers the quantum components in a quantum computer by covering all classical hardware and software components.
- Quantum computer architecture; quantum languages; compilers; QISA; microarchitecture.
- Quantum simulator (QX simulator);
- Quantum error correction: quantum error correction codes; encoding; logical operations.
- Mapping of quantum circuits; placement of qubits; scheduling of operations; routing of qubits;
- Classical hardware for quantum computing: classical controller and quantum processor; qubit hardware and the need for cryogenic electronics;
- Receiver and transmitter architectures for controlling qubits: frequency up/down-conversion, modulation schemes, frequency generation.
- Hardware building blocks: amplifiers, analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog converters, digital processing, FPGA
- Cryo-CMOS: device characteristics, state-of-the-art, design principles.
