Is there any way to use Qiskit's bind_parameters function?

I am running Qiskit using the pennylane_qiskit plugin.
If I look at Qiskit’s log, the circuit is transpiled every time.

I want to transpile only the first time to run the circuit.
After the second time, I want to use Qiskit’s bind_parameters function and to run without transpiling.
Is there any way to execute the above?

Hi @snuffkin! That is correct, currently the Qiskit plugin performs transpilation with every execution. To avoid this, we will need to add support for parametric compilation to the Qiskit plugin.

This is already supported by the Forest plugin, and something we are working on implementing in the Qiskit plugin. I can provide a further update here once it is available :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi @josh

Thank you for your response.

I’m glad you are working on implementing it.
Looking forward to being available!
