2.6.1. Querying the Device Name of Your FPGA Board

Some OpenCL™ software utility commands require you to specify the device name (<device_name>). The <device_name> refers to the acl number (e.g., acl0 to acl127) that corresponds to the FPGA device. When you query a list of accelerator boards, the OpenCL software produces a list of installed devices on your machine in the order of their device names.
To query a list of installed devices on your machine, type aocl diagnose at a command prompt.
The software generates an output that resembles the example shown below:
aocl diagnose: Running diagnostic from <board_package_path>/<board_name>/<platform>/libexec

Verified that the kernel mode driver is installed on the host machine.

Using board package from vendor: <board_vendor_name>
