Xilinx suggests R&D outsourcers for its FPGA buyers

Xilinx, Inc. has introduced the Premier Design Services membership tier of the Xilinx Alliance Program, as an extension of its Design Services member base; to help FPGA customers accelerate new product development and make it easier for FPGA users to find the right partner for their design and development needs.

"The Xilinx Alliance Program creates a global ecosystem through close collaboration with our most trusted partners," said Dave Tokic, Senior Director, Partner Ecosystems and Alliances at Xilinx. "As designs continue to become more complex, Xilinx understands that finding the right design services support can be difficult and time consuming. Customers can select design services members with ease and confidence, as Premier Design Services members have scalably demonstrated that they can execute to the industry's most rigorous criteria of technical, business and quality standards."

Xilinx says in today's technology industry, engineering management in all markets are struggling to balance shrinking time to market budgets and engineering bursts in new product development cycles. As a result, technology companies have turned to R&D outsourcing for their design needs. With R&D outsourcing surpassing the $1 trillion mark in 2009 and predicted to be a $1.4 trillion industry in 2020*, Xilinx has responded to this industry trend by investing in a comprehensive ecosystem that ensures Xilinx Alliance Program members are the most qualified for customer needs and exceed best practices, adds Xilinx.

The inaugural members of the Premier Design Services ecosystem are CoreEL Technologies (India) P. Ltd., Fidus Systems, Inc., and Tokyo Electron Device Ltd. These firms possess engineering centers of excellence across North America, EMEA, Japan, and APAC. Each Premier Design Services member provides system-level electronics design, including FPGA, embedded processor, and mixed-signal board design. Individual members may also provide additional services such as industrial design, mechanical design, software development, and manufacturing capabilities. All Premier Design Service's members maintain FPGA experts who have passed the same rigorous training on FPGA design as Xilinx Field Engineering worldwide, and are provided access to a similar level of Xilinx hotline and webcase support.
