Run a Sample Project with

Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit
If you are using
with FPGA see the FPGA Workflows on Third-Party IDEs for Intel® oneAPI Toolkits.
Starting with the 2021.3 release of the Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit, the Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers (Eclipse CDT) package will no longer be bundled with the Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit. Plug-ins to support Intel® oneAPI development in Eclipse will continue to be provided for integration into a user-provided copy of the Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers either during or after installation of the Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit.
The plug-ins support the past two Eclipse versions that were released as of one month before the toolkit was released. For example, the 2021.2 version toolkits supported Eclipse CDT versions 2020-09 and 2020-12.
The latest version of the Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers install package is available at

Building a Project Using Eclipse* IDE

You can access the entire suite using Eclipse* (see the release notes for minimum required version).
An internet connection is required to download the samples for oneAPI toolkits. For information on how to use this toolkit offline, see Developing with Offline Systems in the Troubleshooting section.
To use the compilers installed with the
Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit
, you must set up your environment by sourcing the setvars script or by loading a module file before launching the Eclipse* IDE workspace. The Intel oneAPI Samples plugin creates individual projects from an existing code samples and uses the CMake build system. You can specify the compiler executable used by changing CMake configuration variables (e.g., CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER to specify the C++ compiler front end). The
C/C++ Build
tab cannot be used to configure CMake projects.

  1. Open a terminal session and source
    For root or sudo installations:
    . /opt/intel/oneapi/
    For normal user installations:
    . ~/intel/oneapi/
  2. From the same terminal session, launch the copy of Eclipse that you will use to develop oneAPI applications.
  3. From the top level menu bar, select
    Browse Intel Samples
    . The samples window appears.
    If you do not see an Intel menu in Eclipse, install the oneAPI Eclipse plugins, then return to this page for instructions on how to Build and Run a sample.
  4. Click
    oneAPI Tools
  5. Click
    IoT Connection Tools
  6. Click the
    Hello IoT World
  7. Click
  8. To build the project, first exclude the build folder by right clicking on the build folder and selecting
    Resource Configurations
    Exclude from Build...
  9. Click
    Build Project
  10. To run the application, click
    A "Hello IoT" message appears in the Eclipse console.
  11. Begin debugging the application.
    The debugger displays a breakpoint at the start of code.

Running a Remote Sample on an Up Squared* Device

  1. Create a Connection within Eclipse by selecting the
    New Connection
  2. Select the SSH Connection type and click
  3. Enter the Hostname and Username for your remote target. You can either use Key-based authentication or Password, depending on the configuration of the remote device.
  4. You may also be then prompted to set an Eclipse Secure Storage password. This protects the password you entered when stored on the disk. Enter the password and click OK.
  5. When connecting to the device for the first time, you should be prompted to trust the device. Click Yes to continue.
  6. From the top level menu bar, select
    Browse Samples
    and select the UP Squared Built-in LEDs sample.
  7. In the
    Project Explorer
    tree, right-click the Up Squared sample and then select
    Build Configurations
    Build All
  8. After the build command executes, in the
    Project Explorer
    tree, expand
    to see the binary. Right-click the
    binary, and then select
    Run Configurations
    Run Configurations
    dialog box opens.
  9. To create a remote run configuration, double-click
    C/C++ Remote Applications
    to create the new run configuration, then populate the following fields.
    Some of the fields pre-populate based on your selection of the binary.
    1. For
      , choose the new remote connection that you created.
    2. Choose a path for the binary on the remote UP Squared device (any directory that you can access will work).
    3. If multiple launchers are available, select the
      launcher to continue with SSH.
    4. Click
      and then
    After the remote application launches, the multi-color LEDs on the UP Squared board blink continuously.
    A message about authorization on the target device may appear, but authorization may not be required. Allow a few seconds for the application to launch on the target.
