pacman.model.partitioner_splitters.splitter_reset module

Module contents

Basic implementations of a selection of splitters. Splitters are responsible for taking an application vertex and creating one or more machine vertices that implement the functionality, together with the edges to internally connect those vertices up (if needed).

class pacman.model.partitioner_splitters.AbstractSplitterCommon

Bases: Generic[V]

Common base class for vertex splitters, defining some utility methods.

abstract create_machine_vertices(chip_counter: ChipCounter)[source]

Method for specific splitter objects to override.

Parameters:

chip_counter (ChipCounter) – counter of used chips

abstract get_in_coming_slices() Sequence[Slice][source]

The slices of the input vertices.

Returns:

list of Slices

Return type:

list(Slice)

abstract get_in_coming_vertices(partition_id: str) Sequence[MachineVertex][source]

Get machine post-vertices for a given partition.

The input vertices are the ones that will serve as target vertices for external edges.

Note

This method returns all that could be used for any source machine vertex in the given partition.

Parameters:

partition_id (str) – The identifier of the incoming partition

Return type:

list(MachineVertex)

get_internal_multicast_partitions() Sequence[MulticastEdgePartition][source]

Get edge partitions between machine vertices that are to be handled by Multicast. Returns empty by default, override if there are Multicast connections between internal vertices

Return type:

list(MulticastEdgePartition)

get_internal_sdram_partitions() Sequence[AbstractSDRAMPartition][source]

Get edge partitions between machine vertices that are to be handled by SDRAM. Returns empty by default, override if there are SDRAM connections between internal vertices

Return type:

list(AbstractSDRAMPartition)

abstract get_out_going_slices() Sequence[Slice][source]

Returns:

list of Slices

Return type:

Return type:

list(MachineVertex)

get_same_chip_groups() Sequence[Tuple[Sequence[MachineVertex], AbstractSDRAM]][source]

  • partition_id (str) – The identifier of the incoming partition

Returns:

A list of tuples of (target machine vertex, list of source machine or application vertices that should hit the target)
