tf.saturate_cast(value, dtype, name=None)

See the guide: Tensor Transformations > Casting

Performs a safe saturating cast of value to dtype.

This function casts the input to dtype without applying any scaling. If there is a danger that values would over or underflow in the cast, this op applies the appropriate clamping before the cast.


  • value: A Tensor.
  • dtype: The desired output DType.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).
