The VOLK working group coordinates work on GNU Radio's Vector Optimized Library of Kernels.


  • Maintain VOLK on all supported architectures, addressing bug reports promptly
  • Develop new kernels as needed by users
  • Complete coverage of all kernels on all supported architectures


We meet about once every other month using a G+ hangout. Hangouts are announced on the discuss-gnuradio mailing list.

In person meetings:

Hot topics[edit]

In recent meetings several topics have become recurring themese. They are

  • Supporting ARM through NEON
  • Exposing VOLK for use in other (outside of GNU Radio) projects
  • Packaging


The inaugural meeting at GRCon13 identified several hot topics to work on. All of those areas have been worked on, and some are still works in progress.
