Abstract
In this paper we present the first ever systematic design
space exploration of microcoded software fault tolerant ion-
trap quantum computers. This exploration reveals the criti-
cal importance of a well-tuned microcode for providing high
performance and ensuring system reliability. In addition, we
find that, despite recent advances in the reliability of quan-
tum memory, the impact of errors due to stored quantum data
is now, and will continue to be, a major source of systemic
error. Finally, our exploration reveals a single design which
out performs all others we considered in run time, fidelity
and area. For completeness our design space exploration
includes designs from prior work [13] and we find a novel
design that is 1
2 the size, 3 times as fast, and an order of
