This year, NovaTick the scalable and versatile FPGA-based Feed Handler Platform has been awarded in the Best Performance Data Feed Handler Category

“We would like to thank our clients for recognizing and rewarding our efforts year after year,” said Luc Burgun, chief executive officer and president of NovaSparks. “Our high performance feed handlers are being deployed in the most demanding trading infrastructures and this award shows that NovaTick not only outperforms the fastest software and hybrid ticker plants but also offers greater scalability and versatility than any customized FPGA based feed handler solution, and at only a fraction of the cost.

This award comes after a year marked with innovation during which the company deployed its PCIe FPGA Card solution on multiple European Stock Exchanges, offering European banks and trading firms the ability to reduce their end-to-end trading latencies even further.

Trading algorithms access the market data faster, and process exactly the data they need. Furthermore, the whole software trading stack is accelerated as more processing resources are freed up for its execution. Alternatively, traders can choose to take advantage of faster trading servers with fewer processing cores.
