Questions tagged [chimera]

For questions about the D-Wave Chimera architecture. The increase in qubit count for the D-Wave Two was accomplished by tiling qubit pattern of the D-Wave One. This pattern, named Chimera by D-Wave Systems, has limited connectivity such that a given qubit can only interact with at most six other qubits. (Wikipedia) Consider using the [dwave] tag with this.

Why did D-Wave choose the Chimera graph the way they did?

D-Wave makes use of a $(n,k=4)$-Chimera structured graph in their computers. Meaning a $n\times n$ grid of unit cells, with each unit cell consisting of a complete bipartite graph on $2k=8$ nodes ($4$ ...
