  • Patent number: 11959950
    Abstract: A power meter for measuring power usage in a circuit includes preprocessor and a weighting network. The pre-processor is configured to receive toggle data for a number of power proxy signals in the circuit for a plurality of clock cycles of the circuit in a first time window. The power proxy signals and weighting values are determined automatically from simulated or emulated toggle data. For each power proxy signal, the pre-processor averages the toggle data over one or more clock cycles in one or more second time windows, within the first time window, to provide averaged toggle data, and outputs the averaged toggle data for each second time window. The weighting network is configured to combine the averaged toggle data from the power proxy signals, based on a set of weight values, to provide a measure of the power usage.

  • Patent number: 11900144
    Abstract: A controller of a quantum system identifies a phase update trigger for a quantum object of the quantum system and an interaction time. Responsive to identifying the phase update trigger, the controller determines, for between a first time and the interaction time, (a) a location/transport effect on a phase of the quantum object based on locations thereof and transport operations performed thereon, and (b) a quantum operation effect on the phase of the quantum object based on any quantum operations applied thereto. The immediately previous phase update for the quantum object occurred at the first time. Based on the location/transport effect, the quantum operation effect, and the interaction time, the controller determines an interaction time phase of the quantum object. The controller adjusts operation of a manipulation source such that a phase of a signal generated by the manipulation source corresponds to the interaction time phase at the interaction time.

  • Publication number: 20230343577
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure describe devices trapping devices for use in quantum information processing (QIP) architectures, and more particularly, to the use and fabrication of a multi-layer ion trap on shaped glass or dielectric substrate. A method for fabricating the ion trap is described that includes preparing a back surface of the substrate, building a multi-layer stack on the top surface of the substrate, and completing the back etch to break through the substrate and etching through a metal and dielectric in the multi-layer stack to complete the formation of the ion trap. Shaping of the ion trap may also include trap narrowing features, wings, and/or undercutting. An ion trap fabricated using this approach may be used in a QIP system to trap atomic species provided through a hole in the back of the substrate for use as qubits in quantum operations and computations.
