Toshiba and Xilinx in partnership

Toshiba Corporation and Xilinx announced a strategic foundry relationship under which Toshiba will manufacture Xilinx high-performance field programmable gate array (FPGA) products.
Together, the companies have already achieved a key milestone with the successful output of functional 90-nanometer (nm) first silicon at Toshiba's state-of-the-art 300-mm-wafer manufacturing plant at Oita, in Kyushu, Japan. Toshiba will start volume manufacturing in the first quarter of calendar year 2005.

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.
