FPGA-based reference design from Algo-Logic and Intel cuts high-speed financial trading latency by 3.8X

Algo-Logic and Intel have developed a high-speed reference framework design that offloads the network stack required for high-speed financial trading to logic instantiated in an Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA on the Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (Intel® FPGA PAC) D5005 platform. The reference design includes:

  • A fast PCIe interface (the Algo-Logic Fast Data Mover)
  • A C/C++ to FPGA business logic implementation area that serves as a target for logic developed using high level synthesis (HLS)
  • A TCP/IP offload engine
  • An ultra-low-latency (ULL) 10GbE media access control (MAC)

According to the conclusion in a new White Paper titled “Low-Latency Data Mover Framework from Algo-Logic with Intel® FPGA PAC D5005,” the reference design achieves 3.8X lower latency compared to a design with just an Ethernet offload engine.1 These innovations significantly accelerate low-latency trading system development while offering the flexibility to add proprietary trading algorithms to the FPGA.
