execute one function 1024 times in parallel

Hi

I am trying to execute one function 1024 times in parallel. I do something like this:

 

func(ap_uint<46> &in, ap_uint<46> &out){

some code

}

 

main function:

ap_uint<46> in[1024];

#pragma HLS array_partition variable=in complete

ap_uint<46> out[1024];

#pragma HLS array_partition variable=out complete

   for (int I=0; I<1024; I++){

      #pragma HLS unroll

      func(in[I], out[I]);

   }

   for (int I=0; I<1024; I++){
      #pragma HLS unroll
      if (out[I]==ref){

       fout=out[I];

      }
   }

 

 

SDAccel (HLS) will pipeline functions, however, I want 1024 copy of func to run exactly at the same time. I think the access of multiple functions to one array or final if  is problem. How can I solve it?

 

EDIT

when I remove if statement functions will be executed in the same time, Hence it seems that if statement is doing something that avoids parallel execution of functions. what is the solution?

Re: execute one function 1024 times in parallel

Hi yyyaaaaayyyy4,

 

     So you put the if statement around the function, it's not going to allow it to necessarily execute 1024 times, as it's a conditional check. I would suggest move the check into the functions. It might be more helpful to understand what the full code example is trying to do. As it might be what's in the function that prevents the expected behavior.

 

Could you share a simplied build able example that still shows the behavior depending on the if statement placement? I can provide more details why it's preventing what you expect.

If at first you don't succeed, try redefining success?
