SAN JOSE, Calif., July 17, 2001—Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX) today announced it has shipped over one million dollars in revenue from the largest Virtex-II Platform FPGA, the XC2V6000 device. Xilinx Platform FPGAs are the newest and most advanced programmable logic devices in the industry, delivering unprecedented logic, memory, and I/O capacity. The Virtex XC2V6000 device offers more than 45 percent more logic resources and greater than 480 percent more on-chip RAM than the closest competing device. On-chip memory resources are becoming increasingly important as system designers use FPGAs more and more to handle large streams of data in high bandwidth communication equipment and video/imaging applications. “We turned to Xilinx for their unmatched logic/ram density, performance, and feature set of the XC2V6000 FPGA,” said Ross Jamieson, vice president of Engineering and cofounder, at Metera Networks, an optical networking equipment supplier in Richardson, TX. “As a start-up company it is important we minimize time to market, reduce risk, and stretch the value of the venture capital raised to begin our company while achieving revolutionary product performance and feature density. This would not be possible without Xilinx Virtex- II FPGA technology.” Xilinx Inc.
