cupy.asarray

cupy.asarray(a, dtype=None, order=None)[source]

Converts an object to array.

This is equivalent to array(a, dtype, copy=False). This function currently does not support the order option.

Parameters:
  • a – The source object.
  • dtype – Data type specifier. It is inferred from the input by default.
  • order ({'C', 'F'}) – Whether to use row-major (C-style) or column-major (Fortran-style) memory representation. Defaults to ‘C’. order is ignored for objects that are not a cupy.ndarray, but have a __cuda_array_interface__ attribute.
Returns:

An array on the current device. If a is already on the device, no copy is performed.

Return type:

cupy.ndarray
