jax.numpy.packbits(a, axis=None, bitorder='big')[source]

Packs the elements of a binary-valued array into bits in a uint8 array.

LAX-backend implementation of packbits().

Original docstring below.

The result is padded to full bytes by inserting zero bits at the end.

  • a (array_like) – An array of integers or booleans whose elements should be packed to bits.

  • axis (int, optional) – The dimension over which bit-packing is done. None implies packing the flattened array.

  • bitorder ({'big', 'little'}, optional) – The order of the input bits. ‘big’ will mimic bin(val), [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1] => 3 = 0b00000011, ‘little’ will reverse the order so [1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] => 3. Defaults to ‘big’.


packed – Array of type uint8 whose elements represent bits corresponding to the logical (0 or nonzero) value of the input elements. The shape of packed has the same number of dimensions as the input (unless axis is None, in which case the output is 1-D).
