nxFramework

Product overview

The Enyx Development Framework (nxFramework) is a hardware and software development environment designed to efficiently build and maintain ultra-low latency FPGA applications for the financial industry.

Aimed at reducing development time through standardizing the core IP blocks needed to build any FPGA-based trading platform, nxFramework enables developers to focus on optimizing their business logic and minimize their time-to-production. Any skilled FPGA developer starting a new low latency project, maintaining an existing one, or looking to change platforms can and should use nxFramework.

The nxFramework is a certified hardware platform for REFLEX CES boards, and has been already developed for the XpressGXA10-LP1150T and XpressGXA10-LP1151B boards.

Benefits & features

  • Mature technology and proven FPGA experts to assist in advancing projects to production faster and at a lower cost than building the components in-house
  • The scalable, modular design enables development across multiple use cases and is supported by a robust collection of IP cores & software libraries
  • Flexible and future-proof platform: nxFramework is platform agnostic and not restrained by current or future technology updates
  • Equipped with the Enyx Inspector, a web-based support tool for a quick deployment and efficient debugging
