Xilinx is the world's leading provider of complete programmable logic solutions. Xilinx develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of advanced integrated circuits, software design tools, and IP (Intellectual Property) cores as predefined system-level features. Customers use Xilinx and its partners' automation software tools and IP verification devices to program specific logic operations. Xilinx pioneered the innovative technology of Field Programmable Logic Array (FPGA) and first introduced commercial products in 1985. At the moment, Xilinx meets more than half of the world's demand for FPGA products. The Xilinx product line also includes Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs). CPLDs are typically faster than FPGAs in some control applications, but they provide less logic resources. Xilinx programmable logic solutions reduce the risk for manufacturers by reducing the time it takes for electronics manufacturers to develop products and speed time-to-market. With Xilinx programmable devices, customers can design and verify their circuits faster than traditional methods such as fixed logic gate arrays. Moreover, since Xilinx devices are standard components that only require programming, customers do not need to wait for samples or pay a huge amount of money as they would with a fixed logic chip.
