Latest solution for real-time pre-trade risk checking, market data filtering and includes the building of the full book.



Paris, FranceSeptember 27, 2012 – Enyx announced today its FPB1 development platform is now available to the market. The platform is based on Altera’s latest 28-nm high-performance Stratix® V FPGA and is particularly suited for use in real-time financial applications.


The board offers the latest PCI Express 3.0 and Ethernet 40G connectivity coupled with an outstanding array of ultra-low latency QDR II+ and high density DDR3-1600 memories within a standard ¾ length PCIe form factor.


Brice Vincent, CTO at Enyx, said:

“This alliance of high density DDR and low latency QDR memories makes our development platform perfectly adapted to “on-the-wire” processing such as pre-trade risk checks, market data filtering or full hardware book building applications”

By coupling a high-performance 28-nm Stratix® V FPGA with a set of IPs such as hardware TCP and UDP networking stacks, PCI-Express DMA and Market Data decoders, Enyx FPB1 becomes the most complete platform for players wanting to create a complete trading engine on a single board.


This platform enables new applications to be developed and deployed by Enyx such as multi-market feed handlers processing up to 16000 US Equities instruments across up to 8 different markets.
