Bases: QasmBackendConfiguration

Backwards compat shim representing an abstract backend configuration.

Initialize a QasmBackendConfiguration Object

Parameters


Attributes

num_qubits

Returns the number of qubits.

In future, n_qubits should be replaced in favor of num_qubits for consistent use throughout Qiskit. Until this is properly refactored, this property serves as intermediate solution.


Methods

from_dict

classmethod from_dict(data)

Create a new GateConfig object from a dictionary.

Parameters

data (dict(opens in a new tab)) – A dictionary representing the GateConfig to create. It will be in the same format as output by to_dict().

Returns

The GateConfig from the input dictionary.

Return type

GateConfig

to_dict

to_dict()

Return a dictionary format representation of the GateConfig.

Returns

The dictionary form of the GateConfig.

Return type

dict(opens in a new tab)
