ARTIQ (Advanced Real-Time Infrastructure for Quantum physics) is a next-generation control system for quantum information experiments, being developed in partnership with the Nobel prize-winning Ion Storage Group at NIST.

The system features a high-level programming language that helps describing complex experiments, which is compiled and executed on dedicated hardware with nanosecond timing resolution and sub-microsecond latency.

Gateware and system-on-chip design

Traditional gateware design with Verilog and VHDL is well known to be tedious and inefficient. M-Labs have developed Migen, a Python-based HDL and toolbox that addresses many of their issues and makes gateware design more productive.

Built on Migen, MiSoC provides a high performance, flexible and lightweight solution to build system-on-chips for various applications.
