Can I use OpenCL to program DE1 FPGA development board without a paid license
I am a student and I want to buy the DE1 FPGA development board. I want to know if I will still need any paid license to use Intel OpenCL tools to program it. My projects are only for academic research.
@GRN is correct, starting from Quartus v17.1, you don't need a separate license for OpenCL; however, OpenCL does not work with Quartus Lite and you will need a license for Quartus Prime Standard to be able to place and route your OpenCL design.
