Featuring 40Gb Ethernet and PCIe 3.0, the ACCELIZE solution enables sub-microsecond latency for financial trading and networking applications
SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 13, 2012 — ACCELIZE, the industry leader in ultra-low latency, FPGA-based network processing platforms today announced the XP7V690LP-40G low-profile FPGA computing card. The ACCELIZE XP7V690LP-40G features 40Gb Ethernet and PCI Express® 3.0 running at Gen3 speed.
Engineered to accelerate networking and financial trading applications, the XP7V690LP-40G features a leading-edge Xilinx Virtex-7® FPGA, high bandwidth, high density DDR3 SDRAM memory, and one direct-attached 40Gb Ethernet link (or up to four 10Gb links), enabling the ultra-low wire-to-fabric latency required for high-frequency trading, smart feed handling, real-time algorithmic trading, and other types of real-time networking applications. The combination of PCI Express 3.0, 40Gb of Ethernet connectivity, and high bandwidth memory on a highly integrated, low-profile, half-height card makes the perfect, deployment-ready programmable platform for high performance network-based computing.
Key Features of the ACCELIZE XP7V690LP-40G include:
- Low-profile PCIe Gen3 form factor
- Based on Xilinx 28-nm Virtex-7 FPGA
- One Direct-attach QSFP+ allowing 40Gb or up to 4 independent 10Gb Ethernet links
- One RJ45 for 10/100 Ethernet
- Two independent banks of DDR3 SDRAM and two independent banks of RLDRAM2
- Full protocol-level support for IEEE-1588 PTP/PPS time stamping
The XP7V690LP-40G is a key component of the ACCELIZE ultra-low latency FPGA network platform, which also includes a comprehensive set of hardware building blocks (IP) and server-side driver and APIs.
According to Stephane Hauradou, VP of ACCELIZE , “The ACCELIZE XP7V690LP-40G is perfectly designed to provide accelerated real-time network processing and the reduced latency required for financial applications.”
