Stocks in this article: XLNX

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced its strategy for its 20nm portfolio, including the next-generation 8 series All Programmable FPGAs and second generation of 3D ICs and SoCs. The 20nm portfolio builds upon the breakthroughs proven at 28nm to provide an extra generation of system performance, lower power and programmable system integration. Co-optimized with Xilinx's Vivado™ Design Suite for the highest productivity and quality of results, the 20nm portfolio will address a wide range of next- generation systems and provide the most compelling programmable alternative ever to ASICs and ASSPs.

"The 20nm portfolio will address the exponentially growing  programmable imperative, fueled not only by the untenable cost of design, but by the need to continuously infuse more intelligence in every system with maximum adaptability,  reuse, and systems integration," said Xilinx president & chief executive officer, Moshe Gavrielov.

Xilinx is optimizing the 20nm All Programmable portfolio to address the requirements of next-generation ever 'smarter,' highly integrated, bandwidth hungry systems. These applications include: 1) intelligent Nx100G - 400G wired networks, 2) LTE™ Advanced wireless base stations employing smart, adaptive antenna, cognitive radio technologies, baseband and backhaul equipment, 3) high throughput, low-power data center solid state storage, intelligent networking, and highly integrated low latency application acceleration, 4) image/video processing including intelligent 'embedded vision' for next-generation displays, professional cameras, factory automation, advanced automotive driver assistance, and surveillance systems, and 5) leading edge connectivity for almost every application imaginable. 

"Xilinx is building on its substantial technology and market lead at 28nm with another break-out portfolio at 20nm that is a generation ahead of its traditional competition and offers significant new advantages versus ASICs and ASSPs," said Xilinx's senior vice president, programmable platform group, Victor Peng.

Xilinx is benefiting from a multi-year head start over the competition in multiple areas;  fine tuning real SoC and 3D IC products with hundreds of customers; developing new ecosystems, supply chains, and processes for quality and reliability, 'co-optimizing' these devices with its next-generation Vivado Design Suite tools; and redefining how high-performance transceivers are optimized in the system.  This allows Xilinx to infuse the added value of 20nm to each of the technologies pioneered and proven at 28nm, keeping Xilinx and its customers a generation ahead.
