Autocast: Does support each input has diffrent dtype in custom op

I have a custom op looks like below:

def staticmethod_combined(custom_decorator):
    return lambda func: staticmethod(custom_decorator(func))

def MyCustomOp(torch.autograd.Function):
    def forward(ctx, t1, t2, t3):
        ## do forward
        return output

    def backward(ctx, grad_out):
         ## do backward
         return grad_t1, grad_t2, grad_t3

I want t1 and t2 is torch.float16 tensor, and t3 to be torch.float32. Now my solution is to manually add explicit type conversions like:

  t3 = t3.float()

I wanner:

  1. Is there a more elegant way of type conversion
  2. Do I need to convert grad back to half in backward after manually converting the type of t3, such as grad_t3.half()

thanks for any help~
