OpenCL isn't cheap

What is the cheapest way to get started with OpenCL for FPGAs? I checked out Altera's website and saw that OpenCL-enabled boards are manufactured by third party manufacturers and their prices were about 4k+ USD! Is there some alternative to get started for a hobbyist-kind of user? Are there other FPGA compnies (Xilinx, Lattice...) that allow for a poor man to get acquainted with OpenCL for FPGAs?

Anyone had a chance to try this? OpenCL looks like a good choice for FPGA design, as it is intended to be all you need to program your parallel processing applications, be it on a multicore CPU, GPU and now FPGA. However, I have been disappointed too many times with 'hey, it's just like writing in C/C++' tools for FPGAs. But hey, maybe it's finally the one?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
