Algo-Logic Systems releases solution for accelerated finance, datacenter industries

Algo-Logic Systems has released latest PCI express (PCIe) with Direct Memory Access (DMA) Gen 3×8 solution for the Accelerated Finance and the Datacenter industries, the company said.

Algo-Logic´s low latency PCIe/DMA solution rapidly transfers data between Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) logic, processors, and memory.

In many High Frequency Trading (HFT) systems, rapid data transfers are needed between FPGA logic and the Order Management System (OMS) software. For these frequent and short transactions, Algo-Logic´s PCIe/DMA solutions are optimal for minimizing latency. Similarly, in datacenter applications, PCIe solutions typically interface processors with network and storage devices. Algo-Logic´s PCIe solutions and Ethernet IP cores can be used in low latency in-memory database applications such as the Key-Value Search (KVS).

The Register Interface supports a low latency host to FPGA communication through memory-mapped I/O (MMIO) with write combining. The DMA Engine is specifically designed for kernel-bypass Linux applications that require high throughput and low latency.

Algo-Logic Systems provides Gateware Defined Networking® products and solutions running on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) devices complemented with open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Algo-Logic Systems products and solutions are used to lower latency in financial trading systems, increase packet throughput in datacenters and clouds, and lower energy consumption for data processing in embedded systems.
