Regarding floating point support in building a custom RTL module using Intel FPGA SDK for OpenCL

It was given that aoc supports only char, int and long. What about "float"?  Can we pass float numbers to custom RTL functions ?

AOC supports pretty much all standard OpenCL data type including float and double. Please refer to "Appendix A: Support Statuses of OpenCL Features" in "Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ Pro Edition: Programming Guide":
