NovaSparks Market Data Coverage Tops 50 feeds

NovaSparks –  NEW YORK, LONDON, PARIS – NovaSparks, the leading field programmable gate array (FPGA) market data company, announced that it has significantly expanded the market data coverage of NovaTick, its flagship ticker plant product. The Company added 10 markets across Japan, Australia, Hong Kong, Northern Europe and Canada in the last five months. The rapid expansion of NovaTick’s feed coverage further ensures that banks and trading firms do not have to compromise coverage for performance. Compared to traditional software solutions, NovaTick is five to 10 times faster on average, and 50 to 100 times faster during traffic peaks.

Luc Burgun, NovaSparks CEO said: “Our ability to add so many feeds in such a short period of time demonstrates our capacity to quickly respond to customer demand and the maturity of our development methodology. We now cover over 50 feeds globally. More than ever, NovaTick combines the speed and determinism that only pure FPGA processing can deliver, together with the coverage and functionalities typically found in software only solutions.”

NovaTick’s design is based on a pure FPGA architecture where all real-time market data processing functions are performed in hardware resulting in the lowest and most deterministic latency. This FPGA-centric architecture is augmented with tightly integrated Intel processors to support non-latency sensitive tasks such as exchange recovery functions. NovaSparks’ ticker plants have a common output format across markets. They are consumed with a single application programming interface (API), which allows banks and trading firms to deploy additional feed-handlers quickly and effortlessly.
