Xilinx FPGA


Xilinx, Inc. is an American technology company, primarily a supplier of programmable logic devices. It is known for inventing the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and as the first semiconductor company with a fabless manufacturing model

Xilinx programmable logic device (PLD) solutions enable designers to reduce their time-to-market in markets such as aerospace/defense, automotive, consumer, industrial, networking and telecommunications. Xilinx flagship Virtex®-FPGA and Spartan®-FPGA families (Field Programmable Gate Arrays), evaluation kits, reference designs, development tools and IP, are the platform of choice for today’s leading companies.

Since its founding more than 25 years ago, Xilinx has been a semiconductor industry leader at the forefront of technology, market and business achievement. Whether pioneering the fabless manufacturing model, inventing the FPGA, ranking among the world's leading patent holders, or delivering products and services distinguished by their quality and reputation for customer satisfaction, a spirit of innovation has driven the company to break new ground.
Today, Xilinx is one of the world's leading providers of programmable platforms, with $1.8B in revenues in fiscal year 2010 and more than 50 percent market share in the programmable logic device segment of the semiconductor industry
