Hello everyone. 

When running the command: 

aoc device/vector_add.cl -o bin/vector_add.aocx --board de5a_net_e1 --report 

 

I get the following message: 

aoc: Selected target board de5a_net_e1

As pointed out in this thread (https://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=56560), Terasic's v16.1 BSP is broken. You can try reporting it to Terasic since nobody other than them can fix this.

Hi, 

 

Need to take note that BSP version are specific to SDK version as well.
