Toshiba Corp., and Xilinx Inc. have entered into a joint development agreement for 65nm FPGAs, which has resulted in successful production of 65nm FPGA prototype wafers, including actual programmable logic circuitries. Achievement of key 65nm joint development milestones is expected to lead to an expanded strategic foundry relationship.

The two companies will also investigate the possibility of continuing collaboration to include development of FPGAs based on Toshiba's 45nm process technologies. Successful execution of a 90nm manufacturing agreement—inked in October 2004—paved the way for continued collaboration between Xilinx and Toshiba at 65nm. Xilinx flagship 90nm Virtex-4 platform FPGAs are produced in volume at Toshiba's state-of-the-art 300-mm-wafer manufacturing plant at Oita, in Kyushu, Japan.

The strategic foundry relationship with Toshiba not only assures Xilinx of another source of stable supply, it allows the company to rely on Toshiba's expertise in integrating high-level design and process technology, a critical aspect of designing for advanced process geometries. The relationship also assures Toshiba of volume semiconductor business in advanced technology.
