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.
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.
