AdvancedIO Launches V5031 10GE Network Card

Financial markets can be a bit tricky to participate in over the web, due to latency and how delays can cost millions, so AdvancedIO decided to try and do something about it.

What the company created is a new and improved 10GE network card with four optical ports, advanced memory configurations and a scalable Stratix V FPGA.

Dubbed V5031, it is the fifth generation programmable product for use in risk control, trading strategies and running algorithms as close as possible to the network.

V5031 is based on Altera's 28nm Stratix V FPGA and goes beyond the performance limit of existing small form factor cards.

“AdvancedIO’s application-centric approach to providing real-time low latency solutions for the financial markets coupled with Altera’s latest 28-nm industry-leading FPGA technology is an impressive combination,” said Jeff Waters, senior vice president and general manager of Altera’s military, industrial and computer business unit. 

“We are pleased to work with AdvancedIO to deliver solutions that enable low latency trading and accelerate trading algorithms.”

AdvancedIO's V5031 will be showcased by the end of the month in Altera’s booth #112 at the Low Latency Summit in London on March 27, 2012. No other pricing or availability details exist, unfortunately.

“There is an insatiable demand for scalable processing density, lower latency, and ease of programming to offer creative financial services in a competitive environment,” said Mohammad Darwish, chief executive officer at AdvancedIO Systems. 

“Our technology has been proven to accelerate processing along the trade path and ultimately increase profit margins for our financial customers. We are excited about the possibilities.”

“The V5031 card has a high-speed, low-latency transceiver interface that allows direct communication between two cards in the system without host intervention. This is particularly useful for applications requiring extensive processing. It also allows for a soft handover, an essential feature for high availability system design,” the company says.
