Last month Enyx hosted it’s first live event focused on the current state of FPGA technology in electronic trading. We had 170+ attendees from 56 different organizations representing 17 different countries.


As a leading FPGA expert, our aim was to re-envision the conversation around the used of FPGA in trading and explore how the technology has advanced, including the different ways FPGA is used and why.


Thank you to everyone who made our first event a great success, we hope you can join us for our fall 2021 edition.



Couldn’t make the live event? Not a problem!

Watch each individual session on-demand and catch up on the state of FPGA in trading.
