Course DescriptionThis course will cover the Intel® FPGA tools available to compile OpenCL™ C code into FPGA hardware. We will discuss the requirements of compiling OpenCL code, types of hardware generated with the tools, and the mechanisms to run OpenCL kernels on the FPGA while communicating with the host program running on a CPU. Lastly we’ll discuss various Intel FPGA SDK for OpenCL productivity and performance optimization features.
