nxAccess Diagram

nxAccess is an FPGA-enabled Network Interface Card designed to plug directly into the PCI-E slot of a co-located trading server. It performs two full hardware offload functions: market data acquisition; and order execution and interfaces with trading strategies through normalized software APIs.

nxAccess is designed specifically for latency-sensitive trading firms that co-locate their trading servers, such as high-speed systematic hedge funds, electronic market makers and proprietary high-performance trading firms.

Acquire – Designed to handle raw market data feed at wire speed, nxAccess delivers constant, deterministic, jitter-free performance to ensure that trading strategies are not adversely impacted by market bursts. It also reduces the latency – and improves the accuracy – of time-sensitive trading strategies by employing per-symbol/per-level filtering and discarding any unneeded data.

Trade – Using normalized APIs for both market data and order interfaces, nxAccess offers the power of the FPGA technology with the integration simplicity of a software solution. These high level interfaces also ensure the transparency of the market protocols updates.

Execute – With a full hardware TCP stack and FIX engine, nxAccess is designed to offload all the order execution processing into the FPGA. Using a lean binary format between the software and hardware layers, it drastically reduces the API and transportation latency to their minimum.
