4.1.2. Installing the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL Pro Edition for SoC FPGA

The Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Development Kit Reference Platform (a10soc) includes an SD flash card image necessary for running OpenCL applications on the board. The SD flash card image includes the recompiled Linux kernel driver, preinstalled version of the Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ , and a script for setting environment variables.

To get started with the RTE on the Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Development Kit using the SD flash card image that comes with the SDK, install the SDK for Windows. If you want to create your own SD card image, install the RTE.
You must have administrator privileges.
  • To install the SDK, perform the following tasks:
    1. Unpack the downloaded AOCL-<version>-<build>-windows.tar file into a folder that you own.
      The installation path must not contain any spaces (for example, <home_directory>\intelFPGA_pro\<version>\hld).
    2. Run the setup_pro.bat file to install the SDK and device support.
  • To install the RTE, unpack the .tgz file install the RTE in a folder that you own.
  • Note: The installer sets the environment variable INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT to point to the path of the software installation.
    Verify that the installer sets the user environment variable INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT to point to the current version of the software. Open a Windows command window and then type echo %INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT% at the command prompt.
    If the returned path does not point to the location of the current SDK installation, or if the path is not set, modify the INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT setting.
