# qiskit.pulse.ControlChannel¶

class ControlChannel(index)[source]

Control channels provide supplementary control over the qubit to the drive channel. These are often associated with multi-qubit gate operations. They may not map trivially to a particular qubit index.

Channel class.

Parameters

index (int) – Index of channel.

Raises

PulseError – If index is not a nonnegative integer.

__init__(index)

Channel class.

Parameters

index (int) – Index of channel.

Raises

PulseError – If index is not a nonnegative integer.

Methods

 __init__(index) Channel class.

Attributes

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

int

property name

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