NovaSparks Launches FPGA-Based Market Data Aggregator

Low-latency trading appliance vendor NovaSparks has launched an entirely FPGA-based order book consolidator that aims to set a new benchmark for latency and determinism in high volume trading.

The consolidator, implemented as an additional FPGA layer on top of the existing 70 feed handlers already available in the company’s NovaTick appliance, can generate normalised order books or BBOs to be consumed by trading applications – either via PCIe or Ethernet, or by hardware trading applications through NovaLink – in under a microsecond, a speed never achieved before, according to the company. The FPGA-based consolidator is designed to relieve trading firms from developing and maintaining their own high-performance custom book or BBO aggregation solutions.
