NEW YORK & LONDON & PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NovaSparks™, the leading field programmable gate array (FPGA) market data company, today announced that it has significantly expanded the market data coverage of NovaTick, its flagship ticker plant product.

We now cover over 50 feeds globally.

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.
