Product and Financial Highlights - Fiscal Year 2020

  • The Data Center Group (DCG) delivered 22% revenue growth over fiscal 2019 driven by increased adoption with hyperscale customers across compute, networking and storage workloads. Pipeline for new opportunities in compute continues to show strong growth for video, HPC, database and fintech. Leveraging the Solarflare acquisition, Xilinx shipped Alveo U25 SmartNIC, the first internally developed SmartNIC solution, in the fiscal fourth quarter and is being evaluated by multiple customers. SmartSSD is also gaining traction with Tier-1 and Tier-2 hyperscale customers. Xilinx now has over 10,000 developers trained on Xilinx software tools, including Vitis, nearly 1,000 ISV partners and over 130 applications published for Alveo.
  • The Wired and Wireless Group (WWG) delivered relatively flat revenues, down 1% vs. fiscal 2019, despite facing a highly challenging business environment related to trade restrictions and an industry slowdown in the ramp of 5G. Xilinx continues to maintain strong engagements with global OEMs across a variety of deployments and applications. Xilinx recently announced a strategic engagement with Samsung on a second generation 5G radio design that includes beamforming technology leveraging the 7 nm Versal platform. Adoption of Xilinx’s RFSoC products also continues to ramp with key wins for DFE applications as well as for O-RAN deployments, as recently announced with Telefónica.
  • Revenues from Core Markets Group grew 6% year over year, showing the strength and stability of Xilinx’s broad and robust end markets. Aerospace & Defense, Industrial and Test & Measurement (AIT) revenue grew 5% annually, driven by solid Aerospace & Defense performance. Automotive, Broadcast and Consumer (ABC) markets delivered 8% annual growth, with strength seen in all end markets despite headwinds in fiscal fourth quarter from COVID-19 impacts. Zynq adoption remains strong in Automotive markets with broad utilization in ADAS and infotainment applications.
  • Xilinx is committed to doing its part in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Xilinx has been working to support some of the largest medical suppliers in the world, such as Mindray and GE Healthcare, to supply critical technology to test and treat COVID-19, including helping to power ventilators, patient monitors, respirators and patient ICU beds. In addition, earlier this month, Xilinx donated $1.1 million for COVID-19 relief to various global and local health organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO) Solidarity Response Fund, The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) COVID-19 Response Fund and the Silicon Valley Strong Fund. Xilinx is also matching employee contributions to various relief efforts.
  • During fiscal year 2020, Xilinx returned approximately $1.58 billion to shareholders. This included $1.21 billion through share repurchases at an average price of $93.73 per share and $372 million through dividends.
