Accelize and Enyx deliver a fully integrated, FPGA-accelerated platform for ultra-low latency trading

FPGA trading platform will be demonstrated at the SIFMA Tech Conference – June 18 and 19, 2013

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 12, 2013 — Accelize, the industry leader in ultra-low latency, FPGA-based network processing cards and Enyx, a leading provider of turnkey FPGA-based solutions for trading firms, today announced immediate availability of a fully integrated, FPGA contained, trading platform aimed at financial firms looking for high performance trading solutions. The platform enables unparalleled tick-to-trade latency by integrating every element of the trading flow into a single PCI Express low profile FPGA board that will easily fit into any standard server.

The combined trading platform is based on the Accelize XP5S620LP FPGA network interface card (NIC) running Enyx’s FPGA trading application. It features:

  • Real-time market data acquisition over 10Gb Ethernet
  • UDP decode and A/B line arbitration inside the FPGA
  • Normalization and book building inside the FPGA
  • High-speed transfer over PCIe to the server’s trading engine, using Enyx’s PCIe Fast Path acceleration API
  • Order flow out to the wire through the FPGA built-in full hardware 10GbE TCP stack

In terms of latency, Enyx trading platform offers a deterministic latency of 1.2µs from fiber to application for the market data access and another 1.2µs from the application to the wire to send an order using a kernel bypass and an embedded TCP stack.

The platform currently supports the CME markets and can be customized for other Options and Futures markets such as Eurex and others.

“Accelize provides a range of FPGA-programmable Network Interface Cards and the supporting IP infrastructure required to enable customers and partners like Enyx to build complete turnkey trading platforms easily and seamlessly,” stated Stephane Hauradou, CTO for Accelize. He adds “This ease of integration is a key differentiator for the Accelize FPGA NICs, giving them a real advantage over the competition.”

According to Arnaud Derasse, CEO of Enyx, “As the first vendor to offer Market Data Processing and Order entry on a single FPGA board to achieve a wire to wire latency of less than 2.4µs, it is crucial to us to be able to deliver a turnkey solution that will seamlessly fits in our customers’ infrastructure.” He further adds “Accelize’s FPGA cards are low-profile and do not require external power which makes integration much easier in trading servers.”
