NovaSparks Slashes CME Feed Latency

The vendor's FPGA platform reduces latency for CME's feed by 40 percent, officials say.


NovaTick typically provides sub-microsecond processing time for equity and futures feeds globally, and delivers average latency of 750 nanoseconds for the CME feed, measured wire-to-wire.

NovaSparks improved the overall latency by increasing the parallelism of the internal processing architecture and by reducing the Ethernet interface latency. All of the provider's upcoming level-based market feed handlers will incorporate these changes.
