  • The scope of multi-dimension matrix is brought up and will be included if there is some use case.
  • Block matrix may not be able to be supported by VHDL language.
  • Cross product for vector will be added if there is appropriate use case.
  • Find use case for matrix exponential operation.
  • The use case of solving matrix equation will determine whether there is need to standardize the sparse matrix solving related operations.
