Xilinx leads one of the fastest growing segments of the semiconductor industry - programmable logic devices. Xilinx develops, manufactures, and markets a broad line of advanced integrated circuits, software design tools and intellectual property. Customers use the automated tools and intellectual property -- predefined system-level functions delivered as software cores -- from Xilinx and its partners to program the chips to perform custom logic operations.

Founded in 1984, Xilinx pioneered a revolutionary new technology, the field programmable gate array (FPGA), and shipped its first commercial product in 1985. Today, Xilinx fulfills more than half the world demand for FPGAs. Xilinx also markets complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs), which are faster than FPGAs for some applications but have fewer logic resources.

Xilinx has more than 7,500 customers worldwide and more than 50,000 design starts. Customers include Alcatel, Cisco Systems, EMC, Ericsson, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Lucent Technologies, Motorola, NEC, Nokia, Nortel, Samsung, Siemens, Sony, Sun Microsystems and Toshiba.

Xilinx is a "fabless" supplier, meaning it doesn't operate its own chip factories. It outsources from IBM in the U.S. and UMC in Taiwan.

The company has manufacturing operations in San Jose and Dublin, Ireland and a major facility in Longmont, CO, where much of the company's software development takes place. A facility in Albuquerque, NM, is dedicated to the development of the company's low-power CoolRunner line of CPLDs as well as intellectual property for FPGAs. Other offices are located in Raleigh, NC, Columbia, MD; Austin, TX; Minneapolis, MN; Edinburgh, Scotland; Grenoble, France; and Toronto, Canada. Xilinx also maintains sales and support offices throughout Europe and Asia and in Japan.

In fiscal 2005, Xilinx had revenues of $1.5 billion and net income of $312.7 million.
