NovaTick™: A new paradigm for pure FPGA feed handlers

NovaTick is the latest generation feed handler developed by NovaSparks. Based on a new hardware platform, NovaTick is a fully integrated ticker plant solution targeting the most demanding customers unwilling to compromise speed and determinism, for scalability and functionality.

Like the previous NovaSparks feed handler, NovaTick relies on four architectural pillars that have made NovaSparks unique:

  • A pure FPGA architecture
  • An easy to deploy and modular 2U appliance
  • An extensive fan-out capability
  • Up to 12 PCIe interfaces for the fastest Direct Memory Access (DMA) transfer possible

Compared to its predecessor, NovaTick delivers even lower latency while offering four times the capacity in terms of number of instruments and five times the performance in terms of input/output bandwidth.

NovaTick also integrates the recovery service offered by most exchanges. Users can start trading in the middle of the day without taking the risk of not being updated on instruments which were moderately traded before the catch up.

NovaSparks’ new platform is built on one of the largest FPGA chips from Altera yielding the lowest possible latency and accommodating the highest number of instruments. The pure FPGA matrix architecture is augmented with tightly integrated multi-core Intel processors to support non-latency sensitive tasks such as exchange recovery functions.

All markets supported by the previous generation of NovaSparks feed handlers are being ported to NovaTick. Priority can be changed based on customer demand.

Key Advantages

  • NovaTick is the first pure FPGA feed handler offering the same features found in software feed handlers.
  • NovaTick feed handler provides a significant capacity and performance boost over the previous NovaSparks generation.
