Enyx announced the launch of our new FPB2 platform powered by the Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+, a pioneering FPGA that brings our nxFeed solution to the forefront of the market.

The FPB2 platform, developed by Bittware, utilizes the cutting-edge Xilinx VUS+ FPGA which offers a 4x larger matrix than our previous platform, as well as 25 Gbs Ethernet connectivity, better overall in/out latency, and a running frequency of up to 800 MHz.

With the adoption of the FPB2 platform, our nxFeed solution will increase overall performance by more than 30%, thus further widening the gap between Enyx and our competitors.

“At Enyx, our main goal is to provide the latest FPGA technology to answer our customer’s challenges” says Enyx Managing Director and Co-Founder Laurent de Barry. “That’s why we are thrilled to introduce this groundbreaking platform. The FPB2 platform gives our clients new, advanced options with the addition of incredible performance,” continues de Barry.

The nxFeed solution will introduce a wide range of integrated, state-of-the-art features and capabilities that will help bypass the competition. These new, upgraded components include:

Enhanced Functionality

  • More than 2x the symbol capacity
  • 18,000 symbols for by-order protocols
  • 36,000 symbols for by-price protocols
  • Improved latency by more than 30%
  • Average wire-to-wire latency of 1076 ns for Nasdaq Totalview ITCH
  • Average wire-to-wire latency of 853 ns for CME Globex MDP3

Cutting-Edge Features

  • Continuous trading book uncross for by-order protocols
  • Improved publication filtering and granularity
  • PTP time stamping

Improved Capabilities
