2.2.4. host

The host element of the board_spec.xml file provides information on the interface from the host to the kernel.
Example XML code:
  <kernel_config start="0x00000000" size="0x0100000"/>
Table 13.  Attributes for the host Element
Attribute Description
kernel_config This attribute informs the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ Offline Compiler at what offset the kernel resides, from the perspective of the kernel_cra host on the kernel_interface module.

start: the starting address of the kernel. Normally, this attribute has a value of 0 because the kernel_cra host should not host anything except kernels.

size: keep this parameter at the default value of 0x0100000.
