LDA Technologies, an FPGA product design and manufacturing firm, announced the release of LDA NeoMux™, a new ultra-low-latency 10G muxing solution that achieves unprecedented 42ns wire-to-wire, thus cutting 40% off the latencies currently available on the market.
NeoMux™ is created on LDA e4™ platform which in its turn furnishes the product with lowest Layer 1 replication latency due to very short traces. Naturally, the solution also inherits all e4™’s perks such as ultra-fast startup time, low power consumption, and so on.
“LDA e4™ is a board-agnostic platform that gives the flexibility to choose the technology best suited for solving the problem at hand,” said Vahan Sardaryan, CEO of LDA Technologies. “For NeoMux™ we chose Xilinx Ultrascale FPGA architecture to take advantage of its I/O and fabric routing to transceivers which results in a much better latency.”
NeoMux™ can also be paired with LDA NeoFilter™ add-on: an ACL-based filtering solution with under 70ns wire-to-wire latency. In various environments such as multitenant networks, where the use of Layer 1 replication is limited due to security reasons, adopting these products together will bring your “exchange data in – filtered data forward – order out” roundtrip time to unprecedented 110ns.
“Until a certain level, latency differences might be lost in the infrastructure and are not worth the hassle of upgrading,” Sardaryan said. “Not 40% though! One cannot possibly have a system so suboptimal as to throttle 40% difference in data delivery speed. If you are not a lucky user of an infrastructure where each trading node is sitting on a dedicated line, LDA Neo™ series products will bring you closer to the exchange than you have ever been.”
LDA NeoMux™ comes in several configurations: NeoMux25, NeoMux25+, NeoMux31, and NeoMux48 based on the port density. LDA NeoMux25 and NeoMux25+ are available for ordering and evaluation now.
NeoMux™ is the first in a series of LDA Solutions to be released by LDA Technologies this year.
LDA Solutions are off-the-shelf products featuring cutting edge IP Cores pre-integrated in the LDA e4™.
LDA e4™ is the first of its kind FPGA board enclosure that is a solid general-purpose platform for FPGA networking products.
