FPGA FIX Accelerator

Rapid Addition > FPGA FIX Accelerator

The FPGA FIX Accelerator for RA Cheetah FIX Engine™ software – halves single message latency and improves engine throughput 500% per session. FIX Messaging Revolution: Cheetah FIX engine™ with FPGA accelerator technology

  • Cheetah FIX Engine with Software API, no FPGA knowledge required Plug’n’play acceleration
  • Stack independent sessions – unlimited software sessions; up to 32 FPGA accelerated sessions
  • Single Java API – write once  – select your session performance characteristics by running in either software for wire to wire (tick to trade) latency of 11µs or using the FPGA acceleration for reduced Wire to wire latency of 5 – 5.5µs
  • Fully supported with the annual licence fee for both software and hardware components
  • Cost effective messaging performance increase reducing TCO without compromising business agility
  • Predictable deterministic message process for faster algo execution, with fewer cache misses
