The growth from these products was driven by a broad base of markets such as data center, automotive, test & measurement, wired and wireless communications and space," said Moshe Gavrielov, Xilinx President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our FY17 strategic increase in R&D investment continues to pay off with the recent expansion announcement of our 16nm portfolio integrating High Bandwidth Memory and Cache Coherent Interconnect technology into Ultrascale+ FPGAs. In addition, our 16nm execution continues unabated. We are currently shipping 12 unique products to nearly 300 customers and remain over a year ahead of the competition."
