Coding for FPGAs
In a slight change from my previous plans, I want to talk about different ways of programming FPGAs. This can often be a fiercely controversial subject, with many advocates of the different methods. But I don’t believe the subjects needs … Continue reading Continue reading
FPGA vs CPUs ii
Last time I pointed out that although a number of applications run faster on FPGAs, not all of them do. This time I’ll be looking at which characteristics allow certain applications to run faster on FPGAs than CPUs. To do … Continue reading
FPGA vs CPUs (or why bother with FPGA)
Before diving into some deeper technical content, I thought it would probably be a good idea to talk about why people in the finance sector are becoming interested in FPGA technology. I’ve personally been involved with FPGA projects in the … Continue reading
What are FPGAs?
To provide some immediate background for people new to the technology, I’ve created a page “What are FPGAs?” which can be accessed on the top bar.
Welcome to this blog which will collect together various ideas about the use of FPGA technology in the world of finance. Content will include high level philosophical issues, as well as low level design techniques. I’ve already collected a number … Continue reading
