A Hybrid Architecture Approach for Quantum Algorithms
ABSTRACT Problem statement: In this study, a general plan of hybrid architecture for quantum algorithms is proposed. Approach: Analysis of the quantum algorithms shows that these algorithms were hybrid with two parts. First, the relationship of classical and quantum parts of the hybrid algorithms was extracted. Then a general plan of hybrid structure was designed. Results: This plan was illustrated the hybrid architecture and the relationship of classical and quantum parts of the algorithms. This general plan was used to increase implementation performance of quantum algorithms. Conclusion/Recommendations: Moreover, simulation results of quantum algorithms on the hybrid architecture proved that quantum algorithms can be implemented on the general plan as well.

ABSTRACT: The objective of this paper is to model a hybrid quantum processor capable of executing both classical and quantum instructions. The processor is modeled and simulated using VHDL. It consists of a MIPS R2000 processor with a quantum processing module embedded within it. Additionally, an assembler has been developed capable of interpreting assembly programs modeling quantum algorithms or circuits, containing instructions from both the standard MIPS instruction set as well as the Quantum Assembly (QASM) instruction set. Furthermore, a quantum C++ library has been developed, with methods and classes to encapsulate the QASM instructions so that a programmer may use it to develop a C++ program implementing a quantum algorithm containing both classical and quantum paMicroprocessors and Microsystems 11/2014; 38(8):1000-1011.
