Below is our recent interview with Pasi Tuomainen, the Founder, CEO, and CTO at Arction Ltd., company behind LightningChart:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to LightningChart?
A: LightningChart® was born from the need that medical device manufacturers had to overcome their struggle while working with commercial and performance-limited charting controls.
Back in 2007, these data visualization controls had an incredibly low performance and medical applications, for instance, EEG, demanded a high volume of data points and fast rendering.
That made us study different gaming technologies to use the rapidly growing computation power of graphics processing units. We achieved this not only in 3D rendering, but 2D rendering as well.
Both LightningChart® for .NET and JS provide a record-breaking performance that suits every single requirement of data-driven applications in the world’s most demanding industries, such as science, research and development, medicine, engineering, and aerospace.

For those who are eager to dive into details, we hit this massive amount of data while keeping the memory footprint and the CPU overhead minimal. LightningChart® JS continues having an incredibly fast mouse-interaction response and an average of 164.1 Frames Per Second using a high-end desktop device.
However, from the end user’s perspective, the latest achievement of LightningChart® JS translates into data-driven applications that will handle large data sets with an almost zero rendering delay allowing users to process their data in real-time with a fast and smooth response. When implementing LightningChart® on a high-end desktop device, it is roughly 700 times faster than an average competitor.
Imagine how millions of data points pouring on a device’s screen device without delay can break the limits of data visualization and help the most demanding industries to perform and analyze their most demanding tasks.
That is the mission of LightningChart®.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your LightningChart® JS Data Visualization library offering?
A: Of course! LightningChart® has a solution for everyone, including those who need a ready-made, cost-efficient, and powerful data visualization control and those who are still hesitating about which charting control to choose.
Users will benefit from full GPU acceleration, WebGL rendering, touchscreen compatibility, and 100+ different chart types, exceeding all Data Visualization industry standards.
We want to support data-oriented professionals to start managing their projects with the help of an advanced charting library of easy implementation and a quick-learning curve.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
So, we encourage all data-oriented professionals to stay connected with us through our social media channels and follow our news because big improvements are on the way!
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
