Cluster API#

The Cluster driver is separated into three layers:

  • QCoDeS driver: Instrument driver based on QCoDeS and the instrument’s native interface.

  • Native interface: Instrument API that provides control over the instrument and is an extension of the the SCPI interface.

  • SCPI interface: Instrument API based on the SCPI standard which in turn is based on IEEE488.2.

QCoDeS driver#

class qblox_instruments.Cluster(*args: Any, **kwargs: Any)[source]#

Bases: Cluster, Instrument

This class connects QCoDeS to the Cluster native interface.

__init__(name: str, identifier: str | None = None, port: int | None = None, debug: int | None = None, dummy_cfg: Dict | None = None)[source]#

Creates Cluster QCoDeS class and adds all relevant instrument parameters. These instrument parameters call the associated methods provided by the native interface.

Parameters:
  • name (str) – Instrument name.

  • identifier (Optional[str]) – Instrument identifier. See resolve(). If None, the instrument is identified by name.

  • port (Optional[int]) – Override for the TCP port through which we should connect.

  • debug (Optional[int]) – Debug level (0 | None = normal, 1 = no version check, >1 = no version or error checking).

  • dummy_cfg (Optional[Dict]) – Configure as dummy using this configuration. For each slot that needs to be occupied by a module add the slot index as key and specify the type of module in the slot using the type ClusterType.

property modules: List#

Get list of modules.

Returns:

List of modules.

Return type:

list

get_connected_modules(filter_fn: Callable[[Module], bool] | None = None) Dict[int, Module][source]#

Get the currently connected modules for each occupied slot in the Cluster.

A selection of modules can be made by passing a filter function. For example:

cluster.get_connected_modules(
    filter_fn = lambda mod: mod.is_qrm_type and not mod.is_rf_type
)
Parameters:

filter_fn – Optional filter function that must return True for the modules that should be included in the return value, and False otherwise.

Returns:

Dictionary with key-value pairs consisting of slot numbers and corresponding Module objects. Only contains entries for modules that are present and match the filter_fn.

Return type:

dict

reset() None[source]#

Resets device, invalidates QCoDeS parameter cache and clears all status and event registers (see SCPI).

disconnect_outputs(slot: int) None[source]#

Disconnects all outputs from the waveform generator paths of the sequencers.

Parameters:

slot (int) – Slot index

disconnect_inputs(slot: int) None[source]#

Disconnects all inputs from the acquisition paths of the sequencers.

Parameters:

slot (int) – Slot index

connect_sequencer(slot: int, sequencer: int, *connections: str) None[source]#

Makes new connections between the indexed sequencer and some inputs and/or outputs. This will fail if a requested connection already existed, or if the connection could not be made due to a conflict with an existing connection (hardware constraints). In such a case, the channel map will not be affected.

Parameters:
  • slot (int) – Slot index

  • sequencer (int) – Sequencer index

  • *connections (str) – Zero or more connections to make, each specified using a string. The string should have the format <direction><channel> or <direction><I-channel>_<Q-channel>. <direction> must be in to make a connection between an input and the acquisition path, out to make a connection from the waveform generator to an output, or io to do both. The channels must be integer channel indices. If only one channel is specified, the sequencer operates in real mode; if two channels are specified, it operates in complex mode.

Raises:
  • RuntimeError – If the connection command could not be completed due to a conflict.

  • ValueError – If parsing of a connection fails.
