Emulate Your Design

The Intel® FPGA Emulation Platform for OpenCL™ software (also referred as the emulator or the FPGA emulator) assesses the functionality of your kernel. The emulator supports 64-bit Windows and Linux operating systems. On Linux systems, the GNU C Library (glibc) version 2.15 or later is required.
You cannot use the execution time of an emulated design to estimate its execution time on an FPGA.

Emulator Installation

The Intel FPGA Emulation Platform for OpenCL software is installed as part of the Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit. For information about how to install this base kit, refer to the Intel® oneAPI Toolkits and Components Installation Guides
