    Highlights -- December Quarter FY06:
    -- Xilinx shipped a record 10 million 90nm devices during the quarter and
       now has four product families in production on 90nm.  Just nine months
       after introduction, Xilinx completed the roll-out of its newest Spartan
       family, Spartan-3E.  The logic-intensive Spartan-3E family complements
       the I/O intensive Spartan-3 family and enables Xilinx to address a
       wider spectrum of applications in the areas of consumer and low cost
    -- Xilinx entered into strategic agreements with both Toshiba Corporation
       and UMC to include technology development at 65nm and beyond. Research
       and development efforts at both foundries have resulted in 65nm
       prototype wafers, including actual programmable circuitry.
    -- During the quarter, Xilinx announced the release of applications-
       optimized XtremeDSP(TM) solutions that accelerate development of
       multimedia, video and imaging (MVI) systems.  The easy-to-use MVI-
       tailored solutions include an integrated design environment with robust
       tools and easy-to-use pre-packaged development kits.  Additionally,
       Xilinx recently announced the acquisition of Accelchip, a provider of
       DSP design tools.  This acquisition strengthens Xilinx's commitment to
       evolving the programming model for FPGA-based DSP system design.
    -- Xilinx announced the 8.1i release of its popular Integrated Software
       Environment (ISE(TM)) design tools, featuring IS Fmax Technology with
       enhanced physical synthesis capabilities to improve performance and
       timing closure for both the Virtex-4 and Spartan-3 architectures.
       Using ISE 8.1i software, designers can boost performance by an average
       of 10% to 37% as compared to previous ISE releases and up to 70% over
       competing solutions using Virtex-4 FPGAs.
    -- On November 15, 2005, Xilinx announced a $40 million investment in a
       new building in Singapore, our Asia regional headquarters.  The new
       building will quadruple the existing capacity of its on-site
       manufacturing facility, triple the in-house process development
       resources and provide increased infrastructure support for the 13
       offices across the Asia Pacific region.

    Business Outlook -- March Quarter FY06
    -- Revenues expected to be up 1% - 5% sequentially.
    -- Gross margin expected to be approximately 63%.
    -- Operating expenses expected to increase approximately 7% sequentially,
       inclusive of the impact of the acquisition of Accelchip.
    -- Other income expected to be approximately $10 million.
    -- Tax rate expected to be approximately 23% plus or minus one percentage
    -- Fully diluted share count expected to decrease to approximately 351
       million shares.
