With high frequency trades being executed in microseconds, the ability to minimize the delay between market data arrival and issuing the trade is key. Financial applications must account for a variety of challenges. These applications require ultra-low latency feed handling as well as ever-faster analysis/data correlation. They should also attain maximum performance per watt to minimize energy and thermal requirements. Many applications also require a scalable architecture to enable “FPGA Farm” implementation. BittWare offers FPGA-based PCIe COTS solutions to address the challenges of developing financial applications:
BittWare is a long-standing, ISO 9000 certified COTS vendor with a history of proven, successful, on-time supply to our customers, who include a number of Fortune 500 companies. Our hardware works out of the box, with validation, verification, and control software in place, allowing our customers to focus on their own expertise – their unique applications. We offer compatible hardware variants for alternate formats, functions, and technology upgrades, so developers can be creative and improve their system implementations without having to redesign components. The result is high-quality, reliable, deployed solutions with a quicker time to market and less risk.
Below you will find an example of the types of solutions BittWare has provided to our customers in the financial industry:
The Open Computing Language (OpenCL™) programming model is now supported on Altera’s Stratix® V FPGA architecture and BittWare’s Stratix V FPGA COTS hardware, providing an incredibly powerful solution for system acceleration. OpenCL dramatically simplifies FPGA development by enabling designers to code their systems and algorithms in a high-level C-based framework. This gives developers access to the latest generation of high-performance FPGAs on a validated COTS PCI Express board, while also significantly reducing their time-to-market by using OpenCL kernels to target Altera FPGAs.
