The Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ includes a Custom Platform Toolkit that you can use to create your custom platform based on an existing Reference Platform from Intel. The Custom Platform Toolkit includes a set of tools, hardware, templates, and header files to run and test the kernel.

The Custom Platform Toolkit provides the raw hardware, which includes the various FPGA interfaces, example kernels with which to test the board and the interfaces, and the MMD layer header files that include the application programming interface (API) you will need to implement in your Custom Platform.

The Custom Platform Toolkit is available in the INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/board directory, where INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT points to the location of the SDK installation.

If you are using an Intel Preferred Board that is provided by an Intel Preferred Board Partner, download the Custom Platform from your board vendor. You do not need to build your own Custom Platform.
