Xilinx Wins Top Honors in 20th Annual EDN Innovation Awards

Spartan-6 LXT Named Innovation of the Year for Unique, State-of-the-Art Electronics in FPGAs

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 27 — (PRNewswire) — Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX) today announced that the Spartan®-6 LXT family won top honors at the 20th Annual EDN Innovation Awards ceremony held this week during the Silicon Valley Embedded Systems Conference, where it was named Innovation of the Year for unique, state-of-the-art electronics in FPGAs.

Spartan-LXT devices are the first low-cost FPGAs fabricated on 45nm, and the only FPGAs in their class with high-speed serial transceivers and integrated endpoint blocks for PCI Express®.  Spartan-6 LXT is part of the Spartan-6 domain-optimized FPGA family, and integrates ubiquitous connectivity standards for a broad set of cost-sensitive applications while delivering double the capability at less than 50 percent of the power. This enables system developers to meet demand for new features, while also reducing system costs by up to half for lower power, 'greener' products.

Spartan-6 was selected from among other finalists by EDN Magazine's worldwide audience of engineers and engineering managers, EDN's editorial advisory board and editorial staff.  EDN Innovation winners will be featured in the publication's print and online editions on May 13.

"In today's fast-paced global market, technology is the key to accelerating change and provides both our company and our customers with the freedom to innovate," said Victor Peng, senior vice president of Programmable Platforms Development. "We are profoundly honored by this industry recognition and remain steadfastly dedicated to pushing through barriers to expand the benefits of programmability for all designers with each new FPGA generation."
