class, custom_op_name='', compute_dtype=None, quant_min=None, quant_max=None, qscheme=None, eps=None, is_dynamic=False)[source]

Observer that doesn’t do anything and just passes its configuration to the quantized module’s .from_float().

Can be used for quantization to float16 which doesn’t require determining ranges.

  • dtype – dtype argument to the quantize node needed to implement the reference model spec.

  • quant_min – minimum value in quantized domain (TODO: align behavior with other observers)

  • quant_max – maximum value in quantized domain

  • custom_op_name – (temporary) specify this observer for an operator that doesn’t require any observation (Can be used in Graph Mode Passes for special case ops).

  • compute_dtype (deprecated) – if set, marks the future quantize function to use dynamic quantization instead of static quantization. This field is deprecated, use is_dynamic=True instead.

  • is_dynamic – if True, the quantize function in the reference model representation taking stats from this observer instance will use dynamic quantization.
