Xilinx also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.09 per outstanding share of common stock, payable on February 28, 2007 to all stockholders of record at the close of business on February 7, 2007.

Sales from all end markets were weaker than anticipated with the exception of the Industrial and Other end market, which increased 3% sequentially as strong sales from defense and test and measurement applications were offset by a decline in sales from industrial, scientific and medical applications. Sales from the Communications end market decreased 7% sequentially, driven by softness in telecommunications.

"Sales from Mainstream and Base Products declined during the quarter," said Wim Roelandts, Xilinx chief executive officer. "However, Xilinx experienced solid growth from New Products, which increased 12% sequentially and represented 26% of total sales, up from 13% of sales in the same quarter a year ago. Sales from the Spartan-3E and Virtex-4 FX families were particularly strong during the quarter driven by a broad base of customers and applications."

Highlights - December Quarter Fiscal 2007:

  • Xilinx sales from products manufactured using 90nm and 65nm process technologies increased to a record 24% of total sales, up from 11% in the same quarter a year ago. Based on cumulative revenues, Xilinx continues to demonstrate its technology leadership by supplying approximately 70% of the world's 90nm field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and 100% of the world's 65nm FPGAs.
  • In December 2006, Xilinx shipped the industry's highest density FPGA. Developed using an advanced power-saving 65nm process technology, the Virtex-5 LX330 FPGA delivers 65% more logic than the largest 90nm FPGAs. Xilinx foundry partners UMC and Toshiba have ramped production on their 65nm processes quickly and with excellent yields, allowing Xilinx to deliver the complete 65nm Virtex-5 LX platform on time and over one year ahead of its competition.
  • Xilinx began shipping its Spartan-3A family of I/O-optimized FPGAs, an extension of its low-cost, high volume Spartan-3 Generation. The Spartan-3A platform provides a cost-reduced solution for applications where I/O count and capabilities matter more than logic density. With support for the industry's widest range of I/O standards (26) and unique power, configuration capabilities and anti-cloning security advantages, Spartan-3A FPGAs provide a flexible and cost-saving solution to new high-volume applications within consumer and industrial end markets, such as display panel interfaces, video/tuner board interfaces and video switching.
