Module containing a Generic InstrumentCoordinator Component.

A Generic class which can be used for interaction with the InstrumentCoordinator.




DEFAULT_NAME = generic[source]
class GenericInstrumentCoordinatorComponent(name: str = DEFAULT_NAME)[source]

Bases: quantify_scheduler.instrument_coordinator.components.base.InstrumentCoordinatorComponentBase

A Generic class which can be used for interaction with the InstrumentCoordinator.

The GenericInstrumentCoordinatorComponent should be able to accept any type of qcodes instrument. The component is meant to serve as an interface for simple access to instruments such as the local oscillator, or current source which needs to only set parameters. For now this component is not being used in any of the hardware backends’ compilation step. This will be fixed in the next official release.

abstract property instrument[source]

Overwrite the instrument method. There is no instrument for the GenericInstrumentCoordinatorComponent class.

property is_running: bool[source]

The is_running state refers to a state whether an instrument is capable of running in a program. Not to be confused with the on/off state of an instrument.

_no_gc_instances :Dict[str, quantify_scheduler.instrument_coordinator.components.base.InstrumentCoordinatorComponentBase][source]
start() None[source]

Starts the InstrumentCoordinator Component.

stop() None[source]

Stops the InstrumentCoordinator Component.

prepare(params_config: Dict[str, Any]) None[source]

params_config has keys which should correspond to parameter names of the instrument and the corresponding values to be set. Always ensure that the key to the params_config is in the format ‘instrument_name.parameter_name’ For example,

params_config = {
                 "lo_mw_q0.frequency": 6e9,
                 "lo_mw_q0.power": 13, "lo_mw_q0.status": True,
                 "lo_ro_q0.frequency": 8.3e9, "lo_ro_q0.power": 16,
                 "lo_ro_q0.status": True,
                 "lo_spec_q0.status": False,
_set_params_to_devices(params_config) None[source]

This function sets the parameters in the params_config dict to the generic devices set in the hardware_config. The bool force_set_parameters is used to change the lazy_set behaviour.

retrieve_acquisition() Any[source]

Gets and returns acquisition data.

wait_done(timeout_sec: int = 10) None[source]

Waits until the InstrumentCoordinator component has stopped running or until it has exceeded the amount of time to run.

The maximum amount of time, in seconds, before it times out is set via the timeout_sec parameter.


timeout_sec – The maximum amount of time in seconds before a timeout.
