Difference in output of Intel Integrated performance primitives (IPP) fir and convolution functions

While working with Intel IPP 7.1 (composer XE 2013) I noticed difference in tail end of output samples between IPP 'fir' and 'convolution' calls. So in the calls below

status = ippsFIR_Direct_64f(pSrc, pDst_f, N+M-1, pTaps,M, pDlyLine,&pDlyLineIndex); status = ippsConv_64f(pSrc, N, pTaps, M, pDst);

with M=7, N=11 and pDlyLine initialized to all zeros, everything else being same:

pDst_f and p_Dst differ in last three indices i.e pDst_f!=pDst for k=14,15,16

I expected them to be exactly equal with third parameter (number of iterations)=N+M-1 in the fir call. Test file is attached. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Hi everybody, I'd like to share results of my investigation. There is some issue ( actually very old! ) related to a 'numIters' parameter of 'ippsFIR_Direct_32f' or ippsFIR_Direct_64f, etc, functions. In the 'ipps.h' header file there is a comment: ... // numIters number of samples in the input array ... However, in the documentation there is some additional note ( I marked it with *** ): ... The function ippsFIR_Direct is declared in the ipps.h file. This function filters an input array pSrc or pSrcDst containing numIters samples through a single-rate filter, *** and stores the resulting numIters samples in pDst *** or pSrcDst, respectively... ...

Summary: - There is some issue with 'numIters' ( number of samples in the input array ) parameter ( I think Intel IPP Software Engineers should explain why it works so ) - Source codes of your modified test-case attached - I tested 'ippsConv_32f' and 'ippsFIR_Direct_32f' IPP functions only ( the Single-Precision Floating-Point type ) - Verification of results based on '!=' is commented out and a new one is based on 'If a difference between CONV-FIR values is greater than an Eplsilon' Best regards, Sergey

Dear Sergey Thanks a lot for looking into the issue and confirming the problem. Your help is much appreciated. May be Intel can address the issue in next release of IPP. Thanks again! Regards Faheem

>>...May be Intel can address the issue in next release of IPP. That would be nice. I'm simply interested to get more details: Are you going to use 'ippsConv_xxf' or 'ippsFIR_Direct_xxf' in your real application?
