FPGA Feed Handlers

A unique offering

The NovaSparks feed handlers provide trading firms with ultra-fast market data processing, book building and normalization into a single unified format. They are built using a pure FPGA approach, i.e. an approach where all the feed processing is performed in the FPGA to assure the lowest latency and the highest determinism possible.

Advanced pipelining and smart parallelization speed up NovaSparks feed-handler up to 10 times faster than software feed handlers on average and up to 100 times faster during market data bursts.

NovaSparks feed-handlers are fully integrated and ready-to-use solutions. They do not require any FPGA programming knowledge. They are delivered as easy-to-deploy 2U modular appliances supporting multiple market feeds concurrently and offering a large number of output interfaces.

When deploying NovaSparks feed handlers, investment banks and trading firms can choose from a unmatched feed coverage including all major equities and futures feeds from the US, Canada and Europe. They also have access to a long list of features and configuration options to adapt to their own environment and to meet consuming applications requirements.
