Integral to the future success of our business is the timely introduction of new products that address customer requirements and compete effectively with respect to price, functionality and performance. Software design tools, IP cores, technical support and design services are also critical components that enable our customers to implement their design specifications into our PLDs. Altogether, these products form a comprehensive programmable logic solution. A brief overview of these products follows. Our product families mentioned in the table below are not all inclusive but they comprise the majority of revenues. They are our newest product families and are currently being designed into our customers' next generation products. Some of our more mature product families have been excluded from the table although they continue to generate revenue.

Product Families

The Virtex-II Pro FPGA family consists of nine members. The family has up to two IBM PowerPC™ processors, up to 20 Rocket I/O™ multi-gigabit transceivers, up to eight megabits of embedded memory, embedded software design tools and operating system support. Virtex-II Pro devices are delivered on 300mm wafers employing 130-nanometer copper process technology. The Virtex-II Pro solution enables ultra-high bandwidth system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs that were previously the exclusive domain of custom ASICs. This family enables leading-edge system architectures in networking applications, storage systems, wireless base stations, embedded systems, professional broadcast and digital signal processing (DSP) systems.

In addition, the Virtex-II Pro family is available as Virtex-II Pro™ EasyPath devices, which provide customers up to 80% cost reduction when compared to the standard FPGA device with no conversion risk. This enables customers to move to lower cost, higher unit volumes without any conversion issues, engineering effort or additional time required to move to a structured ASIC. Virtex-II Pro EasyPath devices are FPGAs that have been custom tested for a specific customer application and are available for the higher density members of the Virtex-II Pro family. Customers purchasing these devices must meet certain minimum order requirements.

The Virtex-II FPGA family is a complete platform for programmable logic that allows digital system designers to rapidly implement a single-chip solution. The Virtex-II FPGA family currently has eleven devices, all on 300mm wafers. In March 2002, the Virtex™-II EasyPath solution was introduced. Virtex-II EasyPath devices enable up to an 80% cost reduction compared to the standard FPGA device with no conversion risk to the customer. As with Virtex-II Pro EasyPath devices, these are available only for the highest density members of the Virtex-II FPGA family and customers purchasing them must meet certain minimum order requirements.

The first generation of the Virtex™ architecture includes the Virtex-E FPGA family and Virtex FPGA family. The Virtex-E FPGA family consists of 11 members and is delivered on 180-nanometer process technology. The original Virtex FPGA family, introduced in October 1998, includes nine 2.5-volt Virtex devices that are currently in production on 220-nanometer process technology with densities ranging from 50,000 to 1 million system gates.

Spartan FPGAs

The Spartan-3 FPGA family was the first PLD family shipping on 90-nanometer process technology. This family consists of eight devices and is one of the lowest cost FPGAs in the marketplace. These devices are programmable alternatives to ASICs that address customer demand for low cost solutions. The Spartan-3 family addresses a larger range of cost-sensitive high volume applications than prior Spartan family generations and enables new consumer electronic market opportunities for programmable logic.

The Spartan-IIE family has seven members shipping and is delivered on 150-nanometer process technology. The Spartan-II family has seven members shipping on 180-nanometer process technology.

The Spartan™-XL family consists of five members with up to 40,000 system gates on 250-nanometer process technology operating at 3.3 volts. The original Spartan™ family was introduced in early 2000. It has five members shipping with densities up to 40,000 system gates on 350-nanometer process technology operating at 3.5 volts.

XC4000 FPGAs

The XC4000 family, introduced in 1990, was the first FPGA offering on-board distributed RAM. The XC4000 became an industry standard and was the Company's fastest growing programmable logic family until the Virtex family was introduced in October 1998. The XC4000 family consists of a number of generations manufactured on 250 to 600-nanometer process technologies.


The XC9500, XC9500XL and XC9500XV product families offer low cost, high speed and in-system programmability for 5.0-volt, 3.3-volt and 2.5-volt systems, respectively.

In August 1999, we acquired Philips Semiconductors' line of low power CPLDs called the CoolRunner family. The CoolRunner "XPLA3" line was the first family of CPLD products to combine very low power with high speed, high density and high I/O counts in a single device. This family has six devices shipping on 350-nanometer process technology. CoolRunner CPLDs also use far less dynamic power during actual operation compared to conventional CPLDs, an important feature for today's mobile computing applications.

The CoolRunner-II family is a next-generation family with six devices shipping on 180-nanometer process technology. CoolRunner-II CPLDs contain enhanced power management and system features at no performance or cost penalty to the customer. We believe that this new class of devices is ideal for both performance-intensive applications as well as power conscious designs targeting the growing consumer electronics markets.
