  • Ubuntu* 18.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS

    Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS is supported natively and in a Windows* Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2) environment.

    In a WSL 2 environment, only the Intel® FPGA AI Suite compiler and IP generation tools are supported.


The PCIe-based design examples require specific versions operating systems. This is required only to use the specific PCIe example design listed. For the operating system requirements for the PCIe-based design examples, refer to the following table:
