SAN JOSE, Calif. and SHENZHEN, China -- Xilinx, Inc., (Nasdaq: XLNX), the world's leading programmable logic supplier, opened a new office in Shenzhen, China, to better accommodate the increased demand for its programmable ICs. China's semiconductor market has been valued at over US$13 billion in 2002 with a projected increase to US$25 billion in 2005. "We are very encouraged by the growth potential we're seeing in the Chinese market," said Wim Roelandts, president and CEO of Xilinx. "As our traditional customers in the telecom and networking industries continue to see healthy growth in the China market, the Chinese consumer's need for more advanced consumer electronics and a growing worldwide demand for Chinese electronic goods are fuelling a strong requisite for PLDs. To fulfill existing and non-traditional applications requirements for PLDs, and to better service our existing and potential customers, Xilinx has opened a second office in Shenzhen, a manufacturing hub for telecom equipment and electronic goods." As a leading area for China's high-tech industry with countless consumer electronic manufacturers and the headquarters of two of China's largest telecom equipment providers: Huawei and ZTE, Shenzhen is important to Xilinx.
