NovaSparks advances FPGA Trading Technologies
NovaSparks is the leader in FPGA-based high performance and ultra-low latency trading solutions for financial markets.
NovaTick™, its flagship Ticker Plant product, supports 75 feeds across the major Equities, Futures and Options trading venues in North America, Europe and Asia. It is packaged in scalable ‘easy-to-deploy’ appliances or in ‘tightly coupled’ PCIe cards.
NovaSparks scalable and deterministic feed handlers deliver normalized market data, including order book building and multi-feed consolidation with sub microsecond processing latency, even during market peaks period.
Deterministic performance is extended to the whole trading cycle, whether the trading algorithms are implemented in software or in hardware.
NovaTick™ also includes advanced built-in functions to support and optimize the use of wireless infrastructures.
The company is headquartered in Paris (France), New York City (USA) and has offices in London (UK), Nantes (France), Athens (Greece) and Bangkok (Thailand).
NovaTick 4th Generation Platform
In comparison with the previous (3rd) generation, this hardware platform reduces ticker plant latency by 25%, multiplies instrument density by 10, unleashes new consumption and integration models and offers two form factors: Appliance and PCIe Card.Learn more
Why pure FPGA?
Could the NovaSparks FPGA platform give you a trading edge? If your trading strategy relies on ultra-fast, deterministic and reliable access to the market data, there is no alternative.
Software and Hybrid Ticker Plants solutions rely on CPUs to handle market data and are not are able to offer the lowest latency, especially during market spikes. Memory bottlenecks, operating system overheads, poor parallelism, compiler limitations and slow networking stacks are among the many factors constraining performance and causing long tails in the processing latency distribution.
