"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."
