Xilinx Inc. and Toshiba Corp. have formed a strategic foundry relationship under which Toshiba will manufacture Xilinx field programmable gate array (FPGA) products. As part of the manufacturing agreement, Xilinx will make advance payments to Toshiba, which will be offset against future wafer purchases. The amounts involved are not viewed as material to Xilinx. Success in the present agreement is expected to point the way to continued cooperation between Toshiba and Xilinx in next-generation 65nm manufacturing process technology.

The agreement assures Xilinx of another source of FPGA products manufactured with advanced process technology, and allows the company to rely on Toshiba's expertise in integrating high-level design and process technology.

Masashi Muromachi, corporate VP of Toshiba and president & CEO of Toshiba's semiconductor company, said, "With the new strategic manufacturing agreement, we will reinforce our system LSI business and expand its scope beyond our current custom ASIC business."
