Learn the foundations of quantum computing with AWS! Enroll in the Amazon Braket Digital Learning Plan and earn your own Digital badge after completing a series of learning courses and a digital assessment.

In Amazon Braket, a device represents a QPU or simulator that you can call to run quantum tasks. Amazon Braket provides access to QPU devices from IonQ, IQM, Oxford Quantum Circuits, QuEra, and Rigetti, three on-demand simulators, three local simulators, and one embedded simulator. For all devices, you can find further device properties, such as device topology, calibration data, and native gate sets, on the Devices tab of the Amazon Braket console or by means of the GetDevice API. When constructing a circuit with the simulators, Amazon Braket currently requires that you use contiguous qubits or indices. If you are working with the Amazon Braket SDK, you have access to device properties as shown in the following code example.

from braket.aws import AwsDevice from braket.devices import LocalSimulator device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:::device/quantum-simulator/amazon/sv1') #SV1 # device = LocalSimulator() #Local State Vector Simulator # device = LocalSimulator("default") #Local State Vector Simulator # device = LocalSimulator(backend="default") #Local State Vector Simulator # device = LocalSimulator(backend="braket_sv") #Local State Vector Simulator # device = LocalSimulator(backend="braket_dm") #Local Density Matrix Simulator # device = LocalSimulator(backend="braket_ahs") #Local Analog Hamiltonian Simulation # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:::device/quantum-simulator/amazon/tn1') #TN1 # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:::device/quantum-simulator/amazon/dm1') #DM1 # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:us-east-1::device/qpu/ionq/Harmony') #IonQ # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:us-east-1::device/qpu/ionq/Aria-1') #IonQ # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:us-east-1::device/qpu/ionq/Aria-2') #IonQ # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:us-east-1::device/qpu/ionq/Forte-1') #IonQ # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:eu-north-1::device/qpu/iqm/Garnet') #IQM Garnet # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:eu-west-2::device/qpu/oqc/Lucy') #OQC Lucy # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:us-east-1::device/qpu/quera/Aquila') #QuEra Aquila # device = AwsDevice('arn:aws:braket:us-west-1::device/qpu/rigetti/Aspen-M-3') #Rigetti Aspen-M-3 # get device properties device.properties
