|History and Business of Company|
(this information may include date of incorporation)
Founded in 1984, Xilinx, Inc. (XLNX) is a leading supplier of programmable logic devices. These devices, commonly known as PLD chips, include field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and complex programmable logic devices. The devices are standard integrated circuits that are programmable by customers to perform desired logic operations. The company's products provide high integration, and create significant time and cost savings for electronic equipment manufacturers in the telecommunications, networking, computing, industrial and consumer markets.|
While FPGAs account for the majority of XLNX's sales, the company also derives revenue from development and system software sales. In FY 01 (Mar.), revenues were derived 62% from the U.S. (67% in FY 00), 20% (20%) from Europe, 10% (8%) from Japan, and 8% (5%) from Southeast Asia and other regions.
XLNX's FPGAs are proprietary integrated circuits designed by the company; they provide a unique combination of the high logic density usually associated with custom gate arrays, the time-to- market advantages of programmable logic and the availability of a standard product. XLNX has several product families, including the XC4000, Coolrunner, Spartan and Virtex lines. The Virtex-E product line offers very high-density chips, including one device with 2 million gates, that are used in applications including storage area networks and cellular base stations.
Company products are classified as base, mainstream, advanced and support. Base products are manufactured using older 0.6-micron linewidth technology and accounted for only 6% of FY 01 sales, down from 12% in FY 01. Mainstream products, produced using 0.50- and 0.35-micron processes, accounted for 35% of FY 01 revenues. Advanced products are made with 0.25-micron and smaller technologies, and provided 51% of FY 01 sales, up from 27% in FY 00. Support products contributed 7% of FY 01 sales.
