— Moore's Law is still valid but it does not work for most sectors of the industry today, according to Wim Roelandts, chairman of programmable logic device vendor Xilinx Inc. (San Jose, Calif.). Roelandts met EE Times Europe during his first visit to Israel, where he attented the recent Global Semiconductor Association conference.
In January, Roelandts stepped up from his post as president and CEO of Xilinx, to become the company's chairman of the board. Roelandts was named president and CEO in 1996 and grew the company's sales from $560 million to over $1.8 billion in fiscal year 2007.
The company has appointed Moshe Gavrielov president and CEO. Gavrielov was the CEO of Israel-based Verisity Ltd., which was ultimately acquired by Cadence in 2005. Gavrielov has recently stated that he intends to grow Xilinx to a $10 billion revenue company during his tenure.
