Accelize, a leader in FPGA-based (Field-programmable Gate Array) platforms and systems for co-processing and high-performance computing applications today announced that it has entered an agreement with the Silicon Valley-based Colfax International. Under this agreement, Colfax International will provide the Accelize line of FPGA accelerator cards as a part of their leading HPC (High Performance Computing) solutions. The first Accelize product Colfax International plans to offer will be the Accelize XP4S530LP-20G FPGA accelerator card, targeted at increasing computing power in financial trading applications.
With its dual 10G Ethernet links and under 150ns latency integrated TOE, the Accelize XP4S530LP-20G is specifically designed for financial trading applications looking for ultra-low latency, FPGA-based hardware platforms. Accelize FPGA accelerators are delivered with a comprehensive software environment that enables non-FPGA-designers to take full advantage of the FPGA hardware.
CEO of Accelize, Arnaud Schleich stated “we were impressed with the knowledge Colfax International brings to building and delivering state-of-the-art HPC solutions. This is key to enabling FPGA adoption by the IT industry and their expertise offers a significant benefit to companies looking for leading HPC solutions”
Gautam Shah, CEO of Colfax International stated “The innovative Accelize line of FPGA-based coprocessors is a great addition to our HPC product offering. Adding Accelize products to our portfolio allows us to broaden our solutions in the HPC space to more directly target high speed financial trading applications.”
The Accelize FPGA-based XP4530LP-20G is the first low-profile FPGA computing platform featuring dual-10G Ethernet and PCI Express Gen2. It includes a combination of hardware, firmware and software, each provided with different options to fit specific acceleration requirements. Engineered to accelerate financial trading applications, the XP4S530LP-20G features the performance and ultra-low latency necessary for high-frequency trading, smart feed handling, and real-time algorithmic trading.
