-- Programmable logic vendor Xilinx Inc. is keeping tight lipped about the source of a supply problem that caused it to lower its June quarter outlook, but some speculate that the issue is related to 65-nm yield issues at foundry partner United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC).
Xilinx (San Jose, Calif.) last week lowered its June quarter revenue estimate, citing a shortfall in sales due to inability to meet strong demand for its Virtex-5 FPGAs. The company said it now expects sales to be down about 5 percent from $395 million in the March quarter, but added that it expects to resolve the supply issues by next quarter.
A spokesperson for Xilinx said the company would not elaborate on the supply issues prior to making its quarterly report on July 15.
