Xilinx has announced that it has achieved a significant milestone at 28nm with over $1bn of cumulative product revenue, realised over three quarters faster than any previous node. In addition, Xilinx has attained 65% cumulative 28nm market segment share since it started shipping in calendar year 2012. As a sign of continued momentum, Xilinx recently concluded calendar year 2014 with approximately 65% 28nm segment share and had a stellar March 2015 quarter that exceeded its 28nm revenue target.
“I’m very proud of Xilinx’s accomplishments at 28nm. Our very fast ramp to over $1bn of cumulative sales and an estimated 65 percent market segment share is only the beginning. Enabled by breakouts in FPGA price/performance/watt, SoCs, 3D ICs and next-generation design tools, I expect 28nm to have the longest life of any previous node and address the broadest set of markets with the highest system value,” said Moshe Gavrielov, president and CEO at Xilinx. “I am also excited about the continued expansion of our portfolio and markets at 20nm and 16nm, and with our recently launched SDx software defined development environments.”
