DescriptionReal-time control software and hardware is essential for operating quantum computers. In particular, the software plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between quantum programs and the quantum system. Current control software is often optimized for a specific system at the cost of flexibility, portability, and maintainability. We propose a modular architecture for real-time control software and demonstrate that modular control software can reduce the execution time of programs up to 48% while not necessarily increasing the binary size. To demonstrate the modularity of our software architecture, we run a portable randomized benchmarking experiment on an ion-trap quantum system.
