The Open Component Portability Infrastructure (OpenCPI) is a real-time embedded (RTE) middleware solution that simplifies programming of heterogeneous processing applications requiring a mix of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA), general-purpose processors (GPP), digital signal processors (DSP), and high-speed switch fabrics. The "mix" can be over a lifecycle (technology insertion) as well as within a single implementation (to meet SWAP constraints). CPI improves code portability, interoperability, and performance in FPGA and DSP-based environments by providing well-defined waveform component APIs with a set of infrastructure blocks that act as a hardware abstraction layer (HAL).

Xilinx has bumped the Gen-2 PCIe core to revision 1.4 in ISE 11.4, and the latest drop of OpenCPI supports Gen2 operation with the ML605. We are working with Xilinx to ensure a smooth transition to ISE 12 as soon as it becomes public. A short video of three development systems is linked here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2lRSuy__-c
