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 for the financial acceleration/HFT (High Frequency Trading) market.
BittWare’s ultra-low latency hardware platforms are based on the industry leading UltraScale FPGAs from Xilinx. These PCIe cards offer the industry’s highest performance FPGAs with over 1 TeraFLOPS of processing, CPU offload, the highest performance transceivers, and optional TOE (TCP/IP Offload Engine) for network and algorithm acceleration. With maximum processing performance per watt to minimize energy and thermal requirements and QDR II/II+ combined with 10GigE straight to the FPGA (no conversion to XAUI) for ultra-low latency, BittWare’s PCIe boards are a robust solution for Financial Acceleration applications.
