SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 14, 2011 — (PRNewswire) —  Xilinx, Inc.

"The Xilinx Alliance Program creates a global ecosystem through close collaboration with our most trusted partners," said Dave Tokic, Senior Director, Partner Ecosystems and Alliances at Xilinx. "As designs continue to become more complex, Xilinx understands that finding the right design services support can be difficult and time consuming. Customers can select design services members with ease and confidence, as Premier Design Services members have scalably demonstrated that they can execute to the industry's most rigorous criteria of technical, business and quality standards."

In today's technology industry, engineering management in all markets are struggling to balance shrinking time to market budgets and engineering bursts in new product development cycles. As a result, technology companies have turned to R&D outsourcing for their design needs. With R&D outsourcing surpassing the $1 trillion mark in 2009 and predicted to be a $1.4 trillion industry in 2020*, Xilinx has responded to this industry trend by investing in a comprehensive ecosystem that ensures Xilinx Alliance Program members are the most qualified for customer needs and exceed best practices.  With an elite design services ecosystem program comprised of individually chosen and comprehensively audited members, Xilinx customers can predictably and repeatedly accelerate R&D.

The Xilinx Alliance Program is a worldwide ecosystem of providers, including Member, Certified and Premier levels of membership delivering products and services on  Xilinx programmable platforms and held to strict business, technical, and quality standards.  Since the program's inception in October 2010, more than 30 Xilinx Alliance Program members have achieved Certified status through rigorous corporate reviews and engineer training certifications.  Premier Design Services members have been chosen and screened by Xilinx from the top 30 Certified Members in the 300-member strong ecosystem and have passed an extensive 320-point onsite audit. 

The inaugural members of the Premier Design Services ecosystem are CoreEL Technologies (India) P. Ltd., Fidus Systems, Inc., and Tokyo Electron Device Ltd.  These firms possess engineering centers of excellence across North America, EMEA, Japan, and APAC.  Each Premier Design Services member provides system-level electronics design, including FPGA, embedded processor, and mixed-signal board design.  Individual members may also provide additional services such as industrial design, mechanical design, software development, and manufacturing capabilities.  All Premier Design Services members maintain FPGA experts who have passed the same rigorous training on FPGA design as Xilinx Field Engineering worldwide, and are provided access to a similar level of Xilinx hotline and webcase support.  

Xilinx Premier Design Services Demonstrates Continued Leadership in FPGA Ecosystem

With the addition of the Premier Design Services tier, Xilinx is continuing its leadership in securing and growing a comprehensive base of best-in-class alliance partners around its programmable platforms. Not only have all Members of the Xilinx Alliance Program been nominated for their excellence in value-added products and services and have passed a thorough quality survey, Xilinx has also ensured that members support industry standards, such as the AMBA® AXI4 protocol, VITA-57 FMC standard, and IEEE P1735 IP encryption standard. Comprised of FPGA IP providers, EDA vendors, embedded software providers, development kit suppliers, and system integrators, Alliance Members help accelerate time to market with reduced risk.
