Project description

Qubit Toaster backend for Qiskit

Allows running Qiskit code on Qubit Toaster - a high performance quantum circuit simulator.

More goodies at


pip install quantastica-qiskit-toaster


Import ToasterBackend into your Qiskit code:

from quantastica.qiskit_toaster import ToasterBackend

Replace Aer.get_backend with ToasterBackend.get_backend.


from qiskit import QuantumRegister, ClassicalRegister
from qiskit import QuantumCircuit, execute, Aer
from quantastica.qiskit_toaster import ToasterBackend

qc = QuantumCircuit()

q = QuantumRegister(2, "q")
c = ClassicalRegister(2, "c")


qc.h(q[0])[0], q[1])

qc.measure(q[0], c[0])
qc.measure(q[1], c[1])

# Instead:
#backend = Aer.get_backend("qasm_simulator")

# Use:
backend = ToasterBackend.get_backend("qasm_simulator")

# OR:
# backend = ToasterBackend.get_backend("statevector_simulator")

job = execute(qc, backend=backend)
job_result = job.result()




ToasterBackend.get_backend(backend_name = None)


backend_name can be:

  • qasm_simulator only counts will be returned

  • statevector_simulator both counts and state vector will be returned

If backend name is not provided then it will act as qasm_simulator

That's it. Enjoy! :)
