Vincent Boulant

Technical team leader | 📍 Montréal


What is your role at Enyx?

I am a Technical team leader and I manage a team that is responsible for delivering ultra-low latency (ULL) IP Cores for internal and external use. A big part of my role is to challenge the team to push past the status-quo in order to constantly innovate in terms of latency but also in terms of features.


Another significant part of my job at Enyx is to work with our clients, product owners and developers to translate feature requests into technical requirements that may end up on our roadmap.


How long have you worked at Enyx? 

In total, I’ve worked at Enyx for 6 years.  I was recruited as a developer to work our internal TCP and UDP IP Cores. After around 1.5 years as a developer, I was promoted to an FPGA Architect position working on our IP cores.


My journey as an FPGA Architect was led by the growth of these IP cores and after 4.5 years, we now have a wide-ranging set of low latency cores, such as our ULL MAC/PCS, ULL PCIe DMA and MMIO, as well as our ULL/STD TCP & UDP.


A large part of my work over the last few years was focused on building and refining our development framework solution, nxFramework, to give clients access to our internal tools and set of IP cores.
