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.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
