openMHA + openCL

Post by mandolini_ » Mon Jun 08, 2020 11:37 pm

I'm trying to accomplish something with openMHA that is probably out of the ordinary for someone using this framework, so bear with me.

I am using openMHA on a BeagleBone AI, which has 2 CPU processors, 2 DSPs, and other co-processors. I have a strict latency limit with this hardware platform, so one of my ideas for reducing round-trip latency is to offload the FFT/iFFT to the DSP cores using TI's openCL implementation. This would speed up the computationally-intensive FFTs. This implementation works well for simple applications, so I decided to try and mix it with the MHA so that I could chain other plugins as well.

I created my "wave2spec" plugin (named "opencl") and chained it together with openMHA spec2wave, and got the following error:

Code: Select all

mha.algos=[ opencl spec2wave ]

Code: Select all

Error: (mhapluginloader) Error in module "mhachain:mhachain":
(mhapluginloader) The plugin /home/debian/openmha/build_dir/lib/ has no processing callback for waveform to waveform processing.
(Release failed with message:
My question is, what is going on in the background of MHA? Why is this error happening, and what should I look for in the openCL code to resolve this?

Yes, this piece of documention is somewhat hard to find. ... manual.pdf section last paragraph should explain the idea.

See it applied like you need it here: ... c.cpp#L126 line 126
