After you complete the initial software and hardware setup successfully, you can create a hardware image from the hello_world OpenCL* design example.
Attention: Before you program your FPGA with the hardware image, ensure that your FPGA contains an image created using a current version of the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ . Refer to Updating the Hardware Image on the FPGA for more information
The figure below summarizes the steps you perform to program your FPGA.
