Intel IPP incomplete?

Hello,

I am evaluating IPP for a project. The last time I used the signal processing library it was Intel SPL. Why are certain IPP function missing implementations for certain data types? For example, why isn't there a Ipp32f version of FIRLMSMR? I've noticed this with other library functions - certain ones do not support all the data types. I know that you can convert between data types for some of the functions, but others are more difficult. I have also noticed that a lot of the functions that were available in SPL is missing and/or have no equivalents in IPP - a lot of the LMS filter functionality, for example. Is IPP incomplete?

Thanks,
Phil

Hello Phil,

I can't comment on the old SPL form of the library, as it predates my involvement with IPP by many, many years.

Looking in "Volume 1: Signal Processing" of the current IPP manual...

http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-integrated-performance-primitives-documentation/

...choose "Filtering Functions," then "Filtering Functions," and then "Single-Rate FIR LMS Filter Functions" to find the "FIRLMS" function, which describes the following two functions:

IppStatus ippsFIRLMS_32f( const Ipp32f* pSrc, const Ipp32f* pRef, Ipp32f* pDst, ... )
IppStatus ippsFIRLMS32f_16s(const Ipp16s* pSrc, const Ipp16s* pRef, Ipp16s* pDst, ... )

Note: I've shortened the parameter lists for easier reading, these functions do not support variable length parameter lists.

If this is not what you're looking for, please provide more details.

Paul
