Bases: qiskit.pulse.channels.PulseChannel

Drive channels transmit signals to qubits which enact gate operations.

Channel class.

Parameters

index (int) – Index of channel.


Methods

is_parameterized

DriveChannel.is_parameterized()

Return True iff the channel is parameterized.

Return type

bool


Attributes

index

Return the index of this channel. The index is a label for a control signal line typically mapped trivially to a qubit index. For instance, DriveChannel(0) labels the signal line driving the qubit labeled with index 0.

Return type

Union[int, ParameterExpression]

name

Return the shorthand alias for this channel, which is based on its type and index.

Return type

str

parameters

Parameters which determine the channel index.

Return type

Set

prefix

Optional[str] = 'd'

A shorthand string prefix for characterizing the channel type.
