Hitek Systems provides integrated 10G platform solutions targeted for extremely low latency applications like financial, high-frequency trading, and high-performance computing.
Germantown, MD -- May 04, 2017 -- Hitek Systems, a leading FPGA IP core development and FPGA / hardware design services firm, announced the availability of the industry leading Ultra Low Latency 10Gbps Ethernet FPGA IP Core solution integrated with the Solarflare® SFA7942Q ApplicationOnload™ Engine (AOE). The solution enables users developing low latency applications with Solaflare AOE platform to seamlessly integrate Hitek’s proven 10G FPGA IP core in their designs. 10G Ethernet MAC+PCS latencies as low as 24.8ns for transmit and 27.9ns for receive allows companies to target low latency applications like financial, high-frequency trading and high-performance computing.
“We provide a fully ported, hardware verified, customer deployed ultra-low latency 10G FPGA IP Core option for the Altera Stratix V GX A7 application Accelerator FPGA on Solarflare AOE,” says Tariq Muhammad, President of Hitek Systems. “The design supports two different port configurations, 2 x 10G and 8 x 10G, and includes pass through reference designs that are completely integrated with Solarflare’s Firmware Development Kit (FDK).”
The Solarflare second generation AOE platform, SFA7942Q, is an optimal platform for processing of network data in real-time. It is a half-length PCie x8 Gen 3.0 card packed with memory and support for both 10G and 40G applications. In the near future, Hitek Systems will integrate their 40G Ethernet FPGA IP core with the Solarflare SFA7942Q platform to give customers a seamless path to developing industry leading real-time applications and products for 10G and 40G.
Hitek Systems’ 10G FPGA IP Core itself can be targeted to both Intel Altera FPGA devices and Xilinx FPGA devices. Excluding device specific transceiver latency, the roundtrip latency in the core itself is only 52.7ns. The core additionally comes with a packet generator / checker for simulations and quick hardware validation. A Linux based GUI application is also provided for interfacing to the reference design.
