terasic / Atlas-SoC Kit and Altera OpenCL compatibility

I apologize in advance if this has been asked before. Searched but found no answers. 

 

 

I bought the terasic / Atlas-SoC Kit. According to this document, it works with the OpenCL dev kit from Altera:

Is this correct? Also if it does support Altera OpenCL, are there guides/documentation/videos showing how to get started? 

 

 

Thankshttps://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gif

Hi!. 

My name is Francisco and Iam student 

 

I bought the terasic / Atlas-SoC Kit,but there is no information on how to run the openGL correctly, for example HELLO WORLD. Need help or first steps, as this board is not connected by PCI

Good effort, I am aware of those resource. Unfortunately neither of those show step by step example of how to program the Terasic Atlas SoC. 

 

The support here is pretty aweful, and so is the support for these FPGA in general. I can't even get a straight forward answer on how to create a hello world program using OpenCL from Windows Altera tools. Most of these things assume the board is attached to the PCI bus on a computer. What if you have a laptop and a seperate computer like the Atlas SoC?

You should feedback this to Altera via their support channel :)

Did anybody find a solution for the AtlasSoC and OpenCL? 

I am currently out of luck as I need a license for the OpenCL SDK and nobody seems willing to sell me one. I installed Quartus Lite 17.0 and the SoC EDS successfully and it's all running.
