4.2. Uninstalling the FPGA Board (uninstall)

To uninstall an FPGA board, invoke the uninstall utility command, uninstall the Custom Platform, and unset the relevant environment variables. You must uninstall the existing FPGA board if you migrate your OpenCL™ application to another FPGA board that belongs to a different Custom Platform.

To uninstall your FPGA board, perform the following tasks:

  1. Disconnect the board from your machine by following the instructions provided by your board vendor.
  2. Invoke the aocl uninstall <path_to_customplatform> utility command to remove the current host computer drivers (for example, PCIe® drivers). The Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ uses these drivers to communicate with the FPGA board.
  3. Uninstall the Custom Platform.
  4. Unset the LD_LIBRARY_PATH (for Linux) or PATH (for Windows) environment variable.
