NovaSparks™, the leading field programmable gate array (FPGA) market data company, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Thesys Technologies (“Thesys”) to begin offering ultra-low latency market data service to Thesys’ customers powered by NovaSparks. Based on a pure FPGA architecture where all the processing is done in hardware, NovaSparks’ data feed handler enables trading firms to maintain ultra-low latency processing in all market conditions.
“Today, FPGA technology is an essential component of any high speed trading infrastructure. FPGAs are able to handle very large market data bursts while maintaining a deterministic latency profile,” said Manoj Narang, CEO of Thesys Technologies. “Partnering with NovaSparks allows Thesys to make the technology cost-effective and easily available to all our customers.”
Based on a pure FPGA matrix architecture, NovaSparks’ feed handlers operate all aspects of market data processing inside the FPGAs. These include decoding, parsing, order management, book building, filtering and data distribution. Pure FPGA processing enables NovaSparks to deliver the lowest and most deterministic latency. In addition, FPGA solutions inherently offer higher resiliency than software thanks to the more static and self-contained nature of their environment.
Luc Burgun, NovaSparks’ president and CEO, commented, “We are pleased to join forces with Thesys to begin offering pure FPGA market data service. This will allow trading firms to take advantage of a cost-effective, quick-start subscription service.”
The solution is initially being deployed for a first customer to handle the five main U.S. equity markets. Future expansions will follow customer demand, taking advantage of NovaSparks’ extensive global coverage of 30 feeds which are all normalized into a common format that is easy to integrate thanks to a robust C++ API.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
