Solarflare and LDA Technologies race to near zero latency

Solarflare and LDA Technologies, partners who recently achieved a world-record 98-nanosecond tick-to-trade network latency based on the I/O in a STAC-T0â„¢ benchmark, are at it again, the company said.

The companies announced the CME (Chicago Mercantile Exchange) Tick-To-Trade Solution and Xilinx MPSoC-based Generic Risk Check Framework, both providing nanosecond latency to traders integrating the products into their environments.

The CME Tick-To-Trade Solution incorporates the record-breaking LightSpeed TCP Offload Engine, an ultra-low latency CME MDP3 feed handler with A/B line arbitration, and an order triggering system.

The Risk Check Framework executes on FPGA boards with multiprocessor system-on-chips (MPSoCs) from various LDA partners.

LDA Technologies is a product design and manufacturing firm specializing in ultra-low-latency FPGA-based products for multiple industries such as networking, information security, trading, and HPC. It is a privately held company founded in 2010 and headquartered in Greater Toronto Area, Canada. For more information visit
