VHDL or Verilog in FPGA for High Speed Automated Trading and HFT?
Your thoughts would be interesting to hear….
Either shouldn’t make a significant difference as both can produce the same level of performance and the fpga or whatever it goes into makes a much bigger impact.
Does High Speed Automated Trading have enough parallel transactions to make it worth while? I would think just a high end general CPUs to be better, but I guess if you analyze multiple trades as one instead of individually that could be interesting over a general CPU… or are you going to do the whole communications layer too to shave every ns.
I don’t know much about automated trading. But it is interested for me too hear about FPGA using in such tasks. Could you please describe more details about it? Thanks!
Its done down to the communication layer. Mind you, this is not my space, but I know people who do this and they shave everything. At a high frequency trading conference last year, the vendor booths were a mix of bandwidth pipe and FPGAs.
