The Ports tab (see LabOne UI: Ports tab)
is divided into two sections: The ZSync ports and two sub-tabs for
Control and Trigger.
The PQSC is always used in conjunction with other Zurich Instruments
devices in a larger system, e.g. a Quantum Computing Control System
(QCCS). The purpose of the Ports tab is to allow the user to understand
the current state of the complete system at first glance. The main
elements are the 18 ports, where the user can see information about the
status and health of each connection, can provide a name to the
connected instrument and can reset the connection. Furthermore the user
can start the sending of the triggers and control the repetitions and
the holdoff of the triggers.
Note: When using the PQSC together with HDAWGs, the user has to set up
the connected HDAWG correctly to use the trigger information that it
receives from the PQSC. Please refer to the multi-HDAWG synchronization
Synchronization of multiple HDAWGs
for more details.
Indicates the availability of the instrument connected to the port. Off: no Instrument detected. Yellow: connection to an instrument is in progress. Blue: connection to an instrument is ready or data is being sent to / received from an instrument. Red: an error has occurred on the connection to an instrument.
The device ID of the instrument connected to this port.
The device type of the instrument connected to this port.
User-given name to the instrument connected to this port.
Starts sending triggers to all connected instruments over ZSync ports.
Sets the number of triggers sent over ZSync ports.
time in seconds
Sets the time between repeated triggers sent over ZSync ports.
0% to 100%
The percentage of repeated triggers sent over ZSync ports.
Enable synchronization. Trigger generation will only start once all workers have reported a ready status. Synchronization checks will be repeated with the same trigger generation settings (holdoff and repetitions) until synchronization is disabled.
ON / OFF
Enable Trigger Out connector.
Select the source for the Trigger Out connector.
Generate a trigger when a trigger is sent over the selected ZSync port.
Generate a trigger when the PQSC sends feedback on the ZSync port.
Select the ZSync port associated with the Trigger Out source.
Time in seconds
Defines the minimal pulse width of the Trigger Out.
