Product and Financial Highlights – Fiscal First Quarter 2019

  • Data Center and Test, Measurement & Emulation (TME) revenues, excluding cryptocurrency and TME, increased both sequentially and year over year. Data Center business momentum continued to strengthen with key design wins from hyperscalers globally for accelerating applications beyond FPGA as a Service (FaaS). Progress also continued on the AWS FaaS offering with the training of an additional 500 developers, bringing the cumulative number trained to date to over 900. We are on track to achieve our goal of over 1,500 developers trained by the end of the year.
  • Xilinx recently acquired DeePhi Tech, strengthening the Company's capabilities in AI from the cloud to the edge. DeePhi Tech is a Beijing-based technology company with industry-leading capabilities in machine learning, specializing in compression, pruning, and system-level optimizations for neural networks. DeePhi has been developing its machine learning solutions on Xilinx platforms since their inception in 2016. In addition to the DeePhi acquisition, Xilinx made multiple investments in private companies during the quarter to expand the Xilinx ecosystem across a breadth of applications including data analytics, video transcoding and network intelligence.
  • Highlighting the Company's continued transformation into a platform company, Zynq based revenues grew 76% year over year driven largely by a broad set of applications in Advanced Driver Assist (ADAS), Industrial, Communications, and Data Center. The Zynq SoC Platform, which includes Zynq at 28nm and both MPSoC and RFSoC at 16nm, now represents 17% of total revenues.
  • Xilinx announced a partnership with Daimler AG for developing a custom AI inference platform. Powered by a Xilinx automotive platform consisting of SoC devices and AI acceleration software, the scalable solution will deliver high performance, low latency and power efficient embedded AI for automotive applications. Further, the Company has cumulatively shipped more than 50 million ADAS units to OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.
  • The Advanced Products category in the first quarter increased 21% year over year and constituted approximately 56% of total sales. Revenues from the 20nm node increased more than 30% year over year and the 16nm node continued its accelerated ramp with sales increasing over 2.5x during the same period.
  • Everest, the industry's first Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP), has won the "Semiconductor of the Year 2018" award from Electronic Device Industry News, a Japanese news outlet. The Everest ACAP is a highly integrated multi-core heterogeneous compute platform that can be programmed at the hardware and software level. Xilinx remains on track to tape out Everest later this year.

Business Outlook – Fiscal Q2 2019 & Fiscal Year 2019

Conference Call

A conference call will be held today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss the June quarter financial results and management's outlook for the September quarter and full year of fiscal year 2019. The webcast and subsequent replay will be available in the investor relations section of the Company's web site at www.investor.xilinx.com.  A telephonic replay of the call may be accessed later in the day by calling (855) 859-2056 and referencing confirmation code 9176449. The telephonic replay will be available for two weeks following the live call. 

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Business outlook for the September quarter and full year of fiscal year 2019 includes financial measures which are not determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), as indicated.  Non-GAAP measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures has been reconciled, in each case, to the most directly-comparable GAAP measure, as indicated in the accompanying tables. The Company's calculation of such non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies.

Management plans to use the non-GAAP financial measures disclosed herein to evaluate the Company's financial results in fiscal second quarter 2019 and beyond from continuing operations (excluding the recent acquisition of DeePhi Tech) as compared to past periods.  Similarly, Management believes presentation of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors because it enables investors and analysts to evaluate operating expenses of the Company's core business, excluding the impact of certain amortization and non-recurring items.
