# Internals of svm_predict¶

This document describes the structure and execution of svm prediction, implemented as svmPredict function.

Svm_predict is a function to predict sample’s classification by trained weight vector and sample feature vector. This function provide a stream in, stream out module to easily get prediction class of sample.

The structure of svmPredict is described as below. The primitive have two function which are getWeight and getPredictions. The input of getWeight is stream and this part stores weight vector in ram. getPredictions has a dataflow region including two functions. one is dot_multiply, the other is tag type transform.

The hardware resource utilization of svm_prediction is shown in the table below (work as 300MHz).
