What interests you about FPGAs?

I am very interested in how FPGAs can be used to essentially act as a network appliance for real time financial knowledge beyond trading, such as risk and p&l systems.

How do you use FPGAs?

I dont currently, but that's because I dont know enough about them

What is your background? (e.g. programmer, EE, hacker, student, hobbyist)

software engineering undergrad, MBA in entrepreneurial management. I run the technology and architecture practice at OmniVista Solutions.

What do you want to learn about or discuss about FPGAs?

What are they NOT good at? What are the requirements for building out and deploying a custom solution?


I'm a software engineer with a business orientation, my firm does consulting at some of the largest hedge funds on the street.
