Enyx nxTCP Financial Edition latency:
– TOTAL: 168.32 ns (TX) and 164.84 ns (RX), measured from the wire to layer 4, which is composed of:
– TCP/IP: 124 ns (TX) and 108.2 ns (RX)
– MAC: 16 ns (TX) and 16 ns (RX)
– PCS: 18.62 ns (TX) and 37.25 ns (RX)
– Altera Stratix V PMA: 9.70 ns (TX) and 3.39 ns (RX)


Enyx nxMAC + nxPCS Financial Edition latency:
– TOTAL: 44.32 ns (TX) and 56.64 ns (RX), measured from the wire to layer 2, which is composed of MAC, PCS and PMA values from above.


Measurement conditions: Altera Stratix V FPGA, 10G connectivity, MAC and TCP/IP blocks running at 250 MHz, 1-byte payload.


Enyx IP Cores today have over 40 customers worldwide, including hedge funds, exchanges, top-tier investment banks, telecom operators, research labs, universities, and technology manufacturers for the defense, aeronautics, aerospace, and high performance computing industries.
