1.4. Overview of the Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ Pro Edition Setup Process

The Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ Pro Edition Getting Started Guide outlines the procedures for installing the Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ Pro Edition and deploying an OpenCL™ example design onto your device.
Important: The RTE does not include the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ Offline Compiler; therefore, you cannot use the RTE to compile an OpenCL kernel. You must use the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL on a separate development machine to create an executable file (.aocx) from the .cl kernel source file. Refer to the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL Pro Edition Getting Started Guide for instructions on setting up the SDK and compiling an OpenCL kernel.
Figure 1.  RTE Setup Process for x86-64 SystemsThe figure below summarizes the steps for installing the RTE and the FPGA board, and in executing an OpenCL kernel on the board.
Note: The FPGA boards are no longer shipped with the SDK and you need to download them from https://fpgasoftware.intel.com/opencl/ page and select Windows BSP or Linux BSP tab.

For an overview of the RTE setup process for SoC, refer to Getting Started with the Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ for Intel® ARMv7-A SoC.
