SAN JOSE, Calif., March 1, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced it has reached another industry milestone with its limited production release of the industry's first 28nm FPGAs. Having shipped thousands of sample units of its latest 7 series families, the release of the lead Kintex™-7 FPGA into production is the latest step in executing the industry's fastest PLD rollout in history. This achievement enables Xilinx customers to start ramping their products into production and serving their customers' demand sooner than ever before.

"We are extremely pleased with the customer acceptance of the entire 7 series FPGA portfolio," said Xilinx President & Chief Executive Officer Moshe Gavrielov. "Moving into the production phase of our rollout is paramount in our ability to serve the demand created by that outstanding acceptance. This limited production milestone is not only great for the Kintex-7 family but accelerates the pace of the remaining members of our 7 series FPGA portfolio."

The Kintex-7 325T FPGA that is now in limited production was specifically developed to meet the application need for major customers in the communications market. By focusing on key applications, Xilinx was able to accelerate the production of the Kintex-7 325T FPGA and enable lead customers to get into production with their critical programs.
