  • value (Optional[str]) – The variable value. (optional)

declare_wave(name: str, value: Optional[str] = None) None[source]

Creates a new variable of type wave with a name and optionally its value.

assign_var(name: str, value: Union[str, int, List[Any]]) None[source]

Assign a value to a variable by name.

This method requires the variable to be declared before allowing a new value to be assigned to it.

Translates to: ` wave w0; wave w0 = "dev1234_awg0_0"; # <-- `

Parameters
  • name – The variable name.

  • value – The new value.

emit_blankline() None[source]

Emits a blank line to the program.

This is typically used to create a visual separation for readability.

emit_comment(text: str) None[source]

Emit a comment to the program.

Parameters

text

emit_assign_wave_index(*args: str, index: int) None[source]

Emit assignWaveIndex to the program which assigns a wave variable to an index in the waveform table (just like a pointer).

Parameters

index – The waveform table index.

emit_execute_table_entry(index: int, comment: str = '') None[source]

Emit executeTableEntry to the program. Executes a command table waveform.

::note executeTableEntry is not blocking so if you want to await the wave use waitWave directly after it.

Parameters

index – The wave index to execute.

emit_play_wave(*names: str, comment: str = '') None[source]

Emit playWave to the program.

Parameters
  • names – The wave names to be played. This should refer to the wave variable name as defined in the seqc, or the wave index in the commandtable to be played.

  • comment – The inline comment to be emitted in the seqc.

Examples

An example for the use of the playWave instruction from the LabOne Programming Manual.

Ensure that the “wave_file” variable (the name argument) corresponds to a filename that was declared using the declareWave

//Definition inline with playWave
playWave("wave_file");
//Assign first to a wave data type, then use
wave w = "wave_file";
playWave(w)
emit_wait_wave(comment: str = '') None[source]

Emit waitWave to the program.

emit_start_qa(comment: str = '') None[source]

Starts the Quantum Analysis Result and Input units by setting and clearing appropriate AWG trigger output signals. The choice of whether to start one or the other or both units can be controlled using the command argument. An bitmask may be used to select explicitly which of the ten possible qubit results should be read. If no qubit results are enabled, then the Quantum Analysis Result unit will not be triggered. An optional value may be used to set the normal trigger outputs of the AWG together with starting the Quantum Analysis Result and input units. If the value is not used, then the trigger signals will be cleared.

Parameter

  • monitor: Enable for QA monitor, default: false

  • result_address: Set address associated with result, default: 0x0

  • trigger: Trigger value, default: 0x0

  • weighted_integrator_mask: Integration unit enable mask, default: QA_INT_ALL

Parameters

startQAResult();
