SNPE SDK optimisation features

I just started learning about the SNPE and I have two basic questions: 

  1. What optimisation features except for quantisation does the SNPE SDK support? For example pruning or weight sharing?
  2. How does the SNPE SDK decide, on which device (CPU, GPU, DSP) the network will be executed? Can I specify that myself?

Thanks and kind regards,

Yes, you can specify the same while building your neural network.
final SNPE.NeuralNetworkBuilder builder = new SNPE.NeuralNetworkBuilder(application)
// Allows selecting a runtime order for the network.
// In the example below use DSP and fall back, in order, to GPU then CPU
// depending on whether any of the runtimes is available.
*.setRuntimeOrder(DSP, GPU, CPU)*
// Loads a model from DLC file
.setModel(new File("<model-path>"));
final NeuralNetwork network =;
