We propose the implementation of digital quantum simulators in superconducting architectures, by enhancing standard digital quantum simulation techniques with complex circuitQED quantum gates. We study the quantum simulation capability of a realistic superconducting setup, composed of transmon qubits and microwave resonators. We analyze the simulated dynamics for interacting spin models [1], and quantum Rabi and Dicke models [2]. By designing novel collective gates for superconducting qubits [3], we show that the dynamics of highly entangled fermionic systems can be recovered [4].
