          In  addition  to  disclosing  financial  results  calculated  in  accordance  with
          U.S.  generally  accepted  accounting  principles  (GAAP),  the  Company's
          earnings  release  contains  non-GAAP  financial  measures  that  exclude  the
          effects  of  stock-based  compensation  and  the  requirements  of  Statement  of
          Financial  Accounting  Standards  No.  123(  R  ),  "Share-based  Payment"
          (SFAS  123(  R  )).  The  non-GAAP  financial  measures  used  by  management  and
          disclosed  by  the  Company  exclude  the  statement  of  income  effects  of  all
          forms  of  stock-based  compensation  and  the  effects  of  SFAS  123(  R  )  upon
          the  number  of  diluted  shares  used  in  calculating  non-GAAP  net  income  per
          share.    These  non-GAAP  financial  measures  are  not  in  accordance  with  or
          an  alternative  for  GAAP  measures  and  may  be  different  from,  and  therefore
          not  comparable  to,  non-GAAP  measures  used  by  other  companies.  The  Company
          has  provided  reconciliations  of  the  non-GAAP  measures  to  the  most
          directly  comparable  GAAP  measures.  Xilinx  believes  that  the  presentation
          of  these  non-GAAP  measures,  when  shown  in  conjunction  with  the
          corresponding  GAAP  measures  and  our  reconciliations,  provides  useful
          information  to  management  and  investors  regarding  financial  and  business
          trends  relating  to  Xilinx's  financial  condition  and  results  of
          operations.    For  additional  information  regarding  these  non-GAAP
          financial  measures  and  their  use  by  Company  management,  see  the  Form  8-K
          dated  October  19,  2006  that  Xilinx  has  filed  with  the  SEC.
