- class TimeBlockade(duration, channel, name=None)¶
This instruction is intended to be used internally within the pulse builder, to convert
ScheduleBlockcannot take an absolute instruction time interval, this directive helps the block representation to find the starting time of an instruction.
This schedule plays constant pulse at t0 = 120.
schedule = Schedule() schedule.insert(120, Play(Constant(10, 0.1), DriveChannel(0)))
This schedule block is expected to be identical to above at a time of execution.
block = ScheduleBlock() block.append(TimeBlockade(120, DriveChannel(0))) block.append(Play(Constant(10, 0.1), DriveChannel(0)))
Such conversion may be done by
from qiskit.pulse.transforms import block_to_schedule, remove_directives schedule = remove_directives(block_to_schedule(block))
The TimeBlockade instruction behaves almost identically to
Delayinstruction. However, the TimeBlockade is just a compiler directive and must be removed before execution. This may be done by
remove_directives()transform. Once these directives are removed, occupied timeslots are released and user can insert another instruction without timing overlap.
Create a time blockade directive.
duration (int) – Length of time of the occupation in terms of dt.
channel (Channel) – The channel that will be the occupied.
name (Optional[str]) – Name of the time blockade for display purposes.
