Optiver leverages FPGA technology for low latency trading purposes. I will give an overview of the environment in which we operate so that you may better understand how trading and FPGAs intersect. By using examples of system implementations, as well as describing the building blocks of a simple trading system, you will walk away with a better idea of how valuable FPGAs are in the low latency trading space. In addition, our domain forces us to make design decisions and implementation choices that wouldn't normally be used in a traditional FPGA application, making it all the more interesting.
