OpenCL C Builtin Function Extensions¶
The following builtin functions are available from OpenCL C code on the DSP
device. They are also available from standard C code that may be called from
OpenCL C code. If using these functions in your standard C code, please add
#include <dsp_c.h>
to your source. This header defines the function
prototypes.

uint32_t
__core_num
(void)¶ Returns the core ID of the DSP issuing the call. This will be a value in the range [0..N1] where N is the number of C66 DSP cores in the device.

uint64_t
__clock64
(void)¶ Returns a 64bit unsigned timestamp representing the cycle count counter in the DSP. Calling this function twice and subtracting the results is a valid mechanism for determining the number of elapsed cycles between two points in your DSP OpenCL C or Standard C code. This function equates to the TSCH:TSCL register pair on the C66 DSP.

uint32_t
__clock
(void)¶ Returns a 32bit unsigned timestamp representing the cycle count counter in the DSP. Calling this function twice and subtracting the results is a valid mechanism for determining the number of elapsed cycles between two points in your DSP OpenCL C or Standard C code. This function equates to the TSCL register pair on the C66 DSP.

void
__cycle_delay
(uint64_t cyclesToDelay)¶ Given a number of cycles to delay, this function will busy loop for approximately that many cycles before returning.

void
__mfence
(void)¶ Creates a memory fence for the C66x DSP. This function is equivalent to the OpenCL C builtin function mem_fence(), but this version can also be called from standard C code called from OpenCL C code.

uint
dot
(uchar4 a, uchar4 b)¶ Compute the dot product of two uchar4 vectors and return the result as a uint. The C66x DSP can support this as a single instruction.

int
dot
(char4 a, uchar4 b) Compute the dot product of a char4 vector and a uchar4 vector and return the result as an int. The C66x DSP can support this as a single instruction.

int
dot
(short2 a, short2 b) Compute the dot product of two short2 vectors and return the result as an int. The C66x DSP can support this as a single instruction.

uint32_t
__dsp_frequency
(void)¶ Returns the clock frequency (Mhz) the DSP cores are running at.
Important
In OpenCL C for C66 a uint32_t is an unsigned int and a uint64_t is an unsigned long. In standard C for C66 a uint32_t is an unsigned int and a uint64_t is an unsigned long long.
