It seems these guys implemented a matching engine using FPGAs.

Based on the roundtrip times of 16 microseconds they are reporting, I would expect the gateway + IP stack is also implemented using FPGAs.

Nice job.

Check out this article on FPGAs:

And our website where we have papers on FIX on an FPGA, Option Pricing, and QuantLib

Why FPGAs are fast?

Could stock exchanges who disseminates the data feed decrease the latency if they used FPGA instead of serial processing? Would it make sense at all, advantages or disadvantages?

Do you mean for making many copies of data for distribution over multiple network paths? If so, then yes. FPGAs can benefit custom re-configurable network hardware.

If people are actually interested in this, there were 3 thalesians seminars on this topic. I attended the latest one, and watched the second one. No idea if the third one is any good.

Latest one: Raj Joshi of Eigen Systems

Maxeler Technologies Thalesians Talk

The third one I haven't yet watched...
