Good grief – I’ve just been battered by a bombardment of announcements from the folks at Xilinx with regard to their presence in the 2012 UBM Electronics ACE Awards.
“Company of the year” Finalist
First of all they’ve been named a finalist for Company of the Year, in recognition for electronics industry, business and technology leadership. Xilinx is the world’s leading provider of programmable platforms, with nearly 50 percent market segment share in the programmable logic device (PLD) market – one of the fastest growing segments of the semiconductor industry.
The winning company will be announced at the 2012 UBM Electronics ACE Awards Gala during DESIGN West on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at The Fairmont in San Jose, California. In addition to Xilinx, Cadence Design Systems, Maxim Integrated Products, NXP Semiconductors and Qualcomm have been named finalists for Company of the Year.
“We’re delighted to be included among such a stellar line-up of ACE Award finalists,” said Moshe Gavrielov, Xilinx President and CEO. “It’s especially gratifying to be recognized by UBM Electronics for our achievements in 2011. We’re now seeing the results of being ‘all in’ for the last 4-plus years with bold, broad, and innovative investments within and beyond our traditional FPGA technologies at the 28nm process technology node.”
But wait, there’s more, because…
“28nm FPGA and EPP” Products Finalist
… their 28nm Virtex-7 2000T 2.5D FPGA and Zynq-7000 EPP (extensible processing platform) have each been nominated for ACE Ultimate Product awards for excellence in engineering in the SoC and Digital IC categories, respectively.
Also, the Spartan-6 FPGA Consumer Video Kit 2.0, one of the programmable logic leader’s first market-specific Targeted Design Platforms, has been nominated in the Development Kits, Reference Designs & SBCs category.
