The Remote device

The 'qiskit.remote' device is a generic adapter to use any Qiskit backend as interface for a PennyLane device.

This device is useful when retrieving backends from providers with complex search options in their get_backend() method, or for setting options on a backend prior to wrapping it as PennyLane device.

import pennylane as qml

def configured_backend():
    backend = SomeProvider.get_backend(...)
    return backend

dev = qml.device('qiskit.remote', wires=2, backend=configured_backend())
