Using OpenCL on Cyclone

Post by tandersoft » Mon May 02, 2016 10:24 am

Is it possible to use OpenCL to write and execute code on the Cyclone. I see references to OpenCL in some of the other posts but none make it clear to me how it is being used. Can one use the CPU in the USB Controller as OpenCL host? or is there a way to use an external CPU (laptop etc) as host and still communicate with the kernels on the Cyclone over USB? I do not yet have a BladeRF and am trying to understand if it can be used for what I want to do.

No, you can't use Altera's OpenCL implementation to target the Cyclone IV on the bladeRF. They really mean for that to be used either over PCIe (like a card in your x86 machine) or with an ARM host (like in their SoC devices).
