Function

vDSP_vam(_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:)

Multiplies a single-precision vector by the sum of two single-precision vectors.

Declaration

func vDSP_vam(_ __A: UnsafePointer<Float>, _ __IA: vDSP_Stride, _ __B: UnsafePointer<Float>, _ __IB: vDSP_Stride, _ __C: UnsafePointer<Float>, _ __IC: vDSP_Stride, _ __D: UnsafeMutablePointer<Float>, _ __ID: vDSP_Stride, _ __N: vDSP_Length)

Parameters

__A

Single-precision real input vector.

__IA

Stride for A.

__B

Single-precision real input vector.

__IB

Stride for B.

__C

Single-precision real input vector.

__IC

Stride for C

__D

Single-precision real output vector.

__ID

Stride for D.

__N

Number of elements to add.

Discussion

This function calculates the sums of the first N elements of A and B, multiplies each sum by the corresponding value in C, and writes the result to D:

A diagram showing the operation of the vDSP_vam function. There are five rows. The top two rows represents the first two inputs, vector A and vector B. The third row represents the intermediate result of the first two inputs. The forth row represents the third input, vector C. The bottom row represents the output, vector D. The diagram has connecting lines from the input vectors to the output vector indicating the relationships between the inputs and output.

The operation is:

 for (n = 0; n < N; ++n)
    D[n] = (A[n] + B[n]) * C[n];

The following code shows an example of using vDSP_vam(_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:_:):

let stride = vDSP_Stride(1)

let a: [Float] = [ 1,  2,   3,  4,   5]
let b: [Float] = [10, 20,  30, 40,  50]
let c: [Float] = [ 2,  0.5, 2,  0.5, 2]

let n = vDSP_Length(a.count)

var d = [Float](repeating: 0,
                count: a.count)

vDSP_vam(a, stride,
         b, stride,
         c, stride,
         &d, stride,
         n)

// Prints "[22.0, 11.0, 66.0, 22.0, 110.0]"
print(d)
