Accelize, FPGA-based network processing card maker, and Enyx turnkey FPGA-based solutions provider, have announced the availability of a fully integrated FPGA contained, trading platform aimed at financial firms looking for high performance trading solutions.

Based on the Accelise XP5S620LP FPGA network interface card (NIC) running Enyx's FPGA trading application, the trading platform features real-time market data acquisition over 10Gb Ethernet. The platform also features UDP decode and A/B line arbitration inside the FPGA, normalisation and book building inside the FPGA. It also supports high-speed transfer over PCIe to the server's trading engine, using Enyx's PCIe Fast Path acceleration API. An Order flow out to the wire through the FPGA built-in full hardware 10GbE TCP stack in also included in the joint effort.

In terms of latency, Enyx trading platform offers a deterministic latency of 1.2?s from fibre to application for the market data access and another 1.2?s 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 customised for other Options and Futures markets such as Eurex and others.
