IPU C/C++ builtins

The following IPU-specific builtin functions can be used in C/C++ code. For some of these the “Tile Worker Instruction Set Architecture (ISA)” is referenced. This is available from Graphcore support on request. Refer to this document for more detailed information on the instructions that are targeted by some of these builtins.

Note

For a lot of these builtins, it is possible to omit the __builtin_ipu prefix by using the corresponding C++ intrinsic. See ipu_cpp_intrinsics_api for more information.

Note

Use #include <ipudef.h> for the IPU native types mentioned throughout this section, such half, half2, float2 and more.
