Proven trading advantage with an easy-to-integrate pure FPGA ticker plant
NovaSparks is the leader in ultra-low latency trading solutions for the financial trading industry. Our unique FPGA centric approach delivers market data with a sub microsecond processing latency including order book building, even during market peak periods. Available for 70 feeds across the major Equity, Futures and Options venues in North America, Europe and Asia, the feed handlers are packaged in easy to deploy appliances offering an extensive fan-out capability for market data distribution. Feed Handlers can also be deployed in a standalone PCIe card that can be installed in any trading server. This PCIe Card is the basic block of the NovaSparks open FPGA development platform, used for designing custom products such as normalized market data converters, ETF calculators, trading strategies execution, order injectors, risk checks, etc.
Founded in 2008 and backed by well-established investors, NovaSparks’ offices are located in Paris, France and New York, USA.
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 Ticker Plants solutions rely exclusively on CPUs to handle market data and are not are not 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.
