LDA e4 to be presented at FIA Futures and Options Expo

BittWare, an industry-leading board supplier for over 25 years, and LDA Technologies, an FPGA product design and manufacturing firm, are presenting the LDA e4, a 10/25 Gbps capable FPGA board enclosure, at the 32nd Annual FIA Futures and Options Expo. A demonstration of LDA's TCP Offload Core will showcase the 48 high-speed port platform with BittWare's XUSP3S PCIe board, featuring a Xilinx UltraScale VU095 FPGA.

The LDA e4 networking enclosure repurposes the serial links on BittWare's PCIe FPGA boards into high-speed Ethernet ports, making the two a perfect fit for a high-performance, 48-port networking product. With FPGA-to-port trace lengths of 6 inches, the networking product allows the lowest possible latencies and makes an ideal platform for financial FPGA applications.

Additional features suited for trading-related applications include Layer 1 replication, support for various CPUs and operating systems, and a high-accuracy clock source that allows for precise timestamping even in data centers with no GPS connectivity.

The e4 board enclosure also provides out-of-band management and a zero configuration option − all in a 12-inch-deep 1U device that takes only half of the rack.

"We are pleased to be able to partner with BittWare," said Vahan Sardaryan, CEO of LDA Technologies. "BittWare boards are best-in-class. They are a perfect fit with LDA e4 allowing for highest port densities. The sheer variety of FPGAs available on their numerous boards makes it possible to offer a full range of pre-integrated solutions on LDA e4."

"The e4 enclosure is an excellent solution for quickly transforming our PCIe FPGA boards into a high port count networking appliance," said Ron Huizen, BittWare VP of Systems & Solutions. "We're excited with the innovations coming from our partnership, notably LDA's approach of using the PCIe lanes for additional 10 GbE ports."

Visit LDA and BittWare on booths 107 and 109 respectively for a demonstration of the LDA e4 using BittWare's XUSP3S. The LDA e4 enclosure, together with BittWare's PCIe FPGA boards, are available now.
