For two-and-a-half decades, Xilinx has been at the forefront of the programmable logic revolution, with the invention and continued migration of FPGA platform technology. During that time, the role of the FPGA has evolved from a vehicle for prototyping and glue-logic to a highly flexible alternative to ASICs and ASSPS for a host of applications and markets.

Today, Xilinx FPGAs have become strategically essential to world-class system companies that are hoping to survive and compete in these times of extreme global economic instability, turning what was once the programmable revolution into the “programmable imperative” for both Xilinx and the customers.
