Dear Dharmisha D.,

Perhaps this demo will help you :

Let me know -



This is the demo that I am following. It works fine with the nlb3 demo bitsteam, but not for openvino related inference workloads.

Dear Dharmisha D. 

Do any other OpenCL workloads work on the board?  I’d make sure the board is functioning properly first. In other words, remove the containers from the equation first.

Hope it helps,




When I run on Bare metal it works fine

In Containers. I get the following error with opencl workloads

FPGA is accessible to the container. It also has access to /dev/intel-fpga-port.0.

I was trying to debug using the simple aocl list-devices on bare metal and in container command and got the following error:

  1. Bare-metal


  1. Container: It says the card is uninitialized , however it is already programmed and initialized.

Dear Dharmisha D,

It looks to me that you are on a very old OpenVino version... API version ............ 1.6.

We just released OpenVino 2019R3. Can you kindly try again with the latest release ?
