Paper Abstract

We present a compiler for programming quantum architectures based on the Quantum Random Access Machine (QRAM) model. The QRAM model consists of a classical subsystem responsible for generating the quantum operations that are executed on a quantum subsystem. The compiler can also be applied to trade studies for optimizing the reliability and latency of quantum programs and to determine the required error correction resources. We use the Bacon-Shor [9, 1, 3] quantum error correcting code as an example quantum program that can be processed and analyzed by the compiler.
