In comparison to the physics that governs the operation of today’s computers, quantum mechanics allows a different means of processing, storing and communicating information to enable powerful technologies not possible with classical logic. As these devices are scaled-up, operating them will require an autonomous means of controlling, interacting and reading out large numbers of qubits in parallel, a task that will be met by combing both quantum and classical devices.

Considering the scale-up of these quantum platforms, the development of new system architectures, circuits, devices, materials and techniques comprising the quantum-classical interface are key to realizing quantum technology. In this work, we aim to develop a quantum computer-aided design (QCAD) framework for quantum device modelling to allow quantum circuit simulation.
