Xilinx creates 12 IP cores

HYDEBARAD: The India Development Centre of Xilinx of the U.S., operated by CMC in Hyderabad, has successfully created 12 Intellectual Property (IP) cores in the first year of operations. With 30 professionals (against 1,000 globally), the research and development facility is expected to grow to 300 employees within the next `several years' said .Wim Roelandts, Chairman, President and CEO of Xilinx Inc. Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, he said Xilinx in partnership with CMC do design specifications to product release. The IP cores are pre-defined hardware modules which perform a particular function. Globally Xilinx has so far created 200 IP cores, he said. Explaining reasons for focus on India and Singapore for such facilities (and one more proposed in China), he said it was not for costs but for designing skill. The benefits of programmable chips over traditional chips, are the costs which are 50 times cheaper than traditional chips, and the 6-9 months time to market against 2-3 years in the latter case.
