V5022 Quad-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet FPGA Server Card

*This card is no longer recommended for new designs. Please see the V5051 Quad-Port PCI Express FPGA Card for comparable functionality.

High Frequency Trading firms and exchanges require high-performance and ultra low latency programmable network cards in order to accelerate trades in under 2 microseconds. The V5022, a quad 10 Gigabit Ethernet Virtex-6 PCI Express card, doubles port density and reduces latency by more than 50 percent when compared to other technologies on the market. It provides the advanced features and performance needed to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

The V5022 is built with purpose for processing high-bandwidth network traffic in real time. As a build option, it supports the HX380T and HX565T from Xilinx offering customers some key benefits, including very high number of logic gates and reliable communications. The two independent DDR3 SDRAM memory interfaces provide adequate buffering to sustain traffic over 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks. In addition, the four independent QDRII+ SRAM memory interfaces make the architecture ideal for implementing advanced algorithms that require buffering or fast look-up tables. Another key feature is the ability to connect cards using a high-speed serial interface to allow direct communication between cards in the system without host intervention. The front panel has four 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ optical ports that support both short range and long range fiber.

The V5022 product is shipping with expressXG, New Wave DVÔÇÖs flexible FPGA development framework, to allow fast application development so customers can roll out new trading services on the market quickly. New Wave DV ensures extreme reliability that gives customers confidence to deploy its product in critical applications. Like other products in the same family, the V5022 is compatible with several high-performance servers from leading OEMs, such as HP ProLiant DL380 Generation 6.┬á This single slot solution allows customers to maximize the number of cards per server, resulting in a smaller server footprint.

New Wave DV is committed to providing the latest innovations in technology, architectures, and techniques to keep our customers one step ahead of the rest of the pack. The V5022 product is intended to offer customers an entirely unique out-of-the-box experience so they can focus their efforts on application deployment rather than getting the communication infrastructure working.
