dpctl.tensor.asarray(obj, /, *, dtype=None, device=None, copy=None, usm_type=None, sycl_queue=None, order='K')[source]

Converts input object to dpctl.tensor.usm_ndarray.

  • obj – Python object to convert. Can be an instance of dpctl.tensor.usm_ndarray, an object representing SYCL USM allocation and implementing __sycl_usm_array_interface__ protocol, an instance of numpy.ndarray, an object supporting Python buffer protocol, a Python scalar, or a (possibly nested) sequence of Python scalars.

  • dtype (data type, optional) – output array data type. If dtype is None, the output array data type is inferred from data types in obj. Default: None

  • copy (bool, optional) – boolean indicating whether or not to copy the input. If True, always creates a copy. If False, the need to copy raises ValueError. If None, tries to reuse existing memory allocations if possible, but allows to perform a copy otherwise. Default: None

  • order ("C", "F", "A", "K", optional) – memory layout of the output array. Default: "K"

  • device (optional) – array API concept of device where the output array is created. device can be None, a oneAPI filter selector string, an instance of dpctl.SyclDevice corresponding to a non-partitioned SYCL device, an instance of dpctl.SyclQueue, or a dpctl.tensor.Device object returned by dpctl.tensor.usm_ndarray.device. Default: None

  • usm_type ("device", "shared", "host", optional) – The type of SYCL USM allocation for the output array. Default: "device"

  • sycl_queue (dpctl.SyclQueue, optional) – The SYCL queue to use for output array allocation and copying. sycl_queue and device are complementary arguments, i.e. use one or another. If both are specified, a TypeError is raised unless both imply the same underlying SYCL queue to be used. If both are None, a cached queue targeting default-selected device is used for allocation and population. Default: None


Array created from input object.
