"The June quarter was exceptional on many fronts. Better than expected sales during the quarter were driven by broad-based end market strength, with particularly strong growth from wired communications and aerospace and defense applications. Gross margin was 69% in the quarter, up from 66% in prior quarter, and a new record for the Company. Operating margin of 33% was up from 28% in the prior quarter and a direct result of improved gross margin and continued spending discipline," said Moshe Gavrielov, Xilinx President and Chief Executive Officer. "Sales of our 28-nm products exceeded $50 million during the quarter, once again surpassing our expectations with strong growth from all five products. With the first 20-nm product in the semiconductor industry recently taped out by the Company, I am confident that Xilinx will continue to drive market expansion opportunities and augment our PLD leadership."
