Lunch Lecture with Optiver

For our annual partner Optiver, BEST delft organized a lunch lecture. Robin Bruce from Optiver was presenting about ‘designing and deploying systems based on FPGAs as critical components within the trading systems of a major proprietary trading company’. With that TU Delft student tried to learn and answer the following questions: Why design custom electronics for trading? What types of trading problems are FPGAs suited towards? What are the design philosophies at work? Is this for real?

This event was a success and BEST delft is looking forward to future cooperation between both organisations.
