Combining ultra-low latency FPGA IP cores and market access technology with next-gen FPGA platforms for high performance, trading solutions available for the APAC region. 

New York, Hong Kong, Taipei – September 26, 2018 – Terasic, the premier developer of Intel FPGA platforms today announced a partnership with Enyx, the leading independent provider of FPGA-enabled, ultra-low latency trading technologies, offering integrated Enyx FPGA IPs for an ultra-low latency, customized development framework on Terasic’s DE5a-Net DDR4 accelerator.

The partnership will provide Terasic’s global client base with access to Enyx’s development framework, including a Sandbox where the user inserts their own custom logic to interface with Enyx IP cores, such as TCP and UDP Stacks, MAC/PCS layers and Enyx’s DMA engine (HFP). Packaged with an easy-to-use software API and Linux drivers, the Enyx development framework constitutes the perfect “start-up kit” to reduce time-to-market and jump-start your FPGA-enabled projects.

With twenty years of experience in developing high-end solutions for the industrial and FPGA system markets, Terasic provides first-class, design-to-order services for large-scale deployment of high speed boards and ready-to-use, highly optimized systems – the rugged FPGA systems have been deployed in various extreme environments, such as Wall Street’s zero-downtime data center and 5G base station in desert.

Enyx’s development framework, together with Terasic’s DE5a-Net-DDR4 accelerator, offers an industry-first development kit for trading firms that aim to build their FPGA-enabled solutions in-house, including risk-check gateways and ULL tick-to-trade platforms. Clients’ systems can achieve highest performance and lowest cost for their high-bandwidth applications by leveraging the Arria® 10 FPGA on DE5a-Net-DDR4 to develop cost-competitive state-of-the-art solutions for today’s financial industry.

Arnaud Derasse, co-founder and CEO at Enyx says,“At Enyx, our main goal is to provide the latest FPGA technology to answer our customer’s challenges, so we are honoured to have been chosen by Terasic and to be recognized for our expertise in understanding the real challenges of today’s trading infrastructure.

After opening our Hong Kong office in early 2018, partnering with Taiwan-based Terasic highlights our expanded presence in the Asia-Pacific region, providing new ways to access and trade across both local and global markets. By bringing together Enyx’s expertise in trading technology and HFT, with Terasic’s leading FPGA hardware platforms — we can help our client’s find success in today’s emerging markets”.

Sean Peng, founder and CEO at Terasic Inc., comments,“Being Intel’s sole contract FPGA platform manufacturer for more than 15thyears, Terasic’s robust, on-the-field FPGA platforms have been massively adopted to power the most performance-demanding applications in 21st century, such as high frequency trading, DNA and genetics sequencing, big data analytics.

The partnership with Enyx is invaluable – by combining Terasic’s best-in-class hardware design expertise with Enyx’s industry-first IPs and market access technologies, we look forward to providing the best end-to-end solution to address the challenges of today’s computational finance applications.”
