San Jose, CA--September 24, 1996--Xilinx Inc. (San Jose, CA) announced that it has shipped the five millionth unit of its XC4000 field programmable gate array (FPGA) product family.
Since its launch, the XC4000 family has contributed more than $561 million in revenues to Xilinx. The XC4000 reached its one-million-unit milestone in mid-1994. In the last two years XC4000 shipments have accelerated dramatically. Xilinx surpassed the two millionth, three millionth, and four millionth milestones for the XC4000 in 1995 and exceeded the five millionth mark this quarter.
Xilinx commemorated the milestone by recognizing Acuson Corp. (Mountain View, CA) as the recipient of the five millionth XC4000 FPGA. Acuson has been a customer of Xilinx since the late 1980s and has used Xilinx FPGAs in a variety of products, including the 128 XP and Sequoia ultrasound systems.
