Xilinx Uses Virtual Silicon IP for 90 nm Spartan-3 FPGA; Silicon Verified at IBM Microelectronics and UMC Foundries

SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Nov. 24, 2003— Virtual Silicon, Inc., a leader in semiconductor intellectual property (SIP), today announced that Xilinx, Inc. has successfully used Virtual Silicon standard cell SIP products in their Spartan-3(TM) Platform FPGA, the world's first 90nm programmable chips. The Spartan-3 device is targeted for manufacture at both IBM Microelectronics and UMC foundries in 90nm-process technology. Virtual Silicon SIP has been silicon verified at 90nm for both UMC and IBM foundries.

"Virtual Silicon's standard cells, incorporating highly accurate characterization and modeling, proved to be a valuable component of the logic portion of the Spartan-3 device," Richard Li, director of GPD product development at Xilinx. "Virtual Silicon standard cells enable Xilinx to manufacture at either UMC or IBM without a redesign of the chip. This type of capability gives us the flexibility in manufacturing we require."

"Virtual Silicon is proud to be a part of Xilinx's 90nm team for the world leading Spartan-3 FPGAs," said Barry Hoberman, president and CEO of Virtual Silicon. "Xilinx is clearly the leader in developing programmable products that enable system designers to develop tomorrow's innovative products."
