US-based logic-solutions provider Xilinx bullish on Chinese market

California-based Xilinx Inc, the world’s largest supplier of programmable logic solutions, is eyeing China’s market for field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for its future growth, a company executive said in an interview with the Global Times.

FPGAs are a kind of programmable-logic device used in equipment from satellites to televisions to cars, enabling flexible designs in different applications, as opposed to traditional application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC), which are designed for only one application.

The use of FPGAs has become very popular in China, as it helps save money on investment costs in application-specific platforms.

"China is one of our greatest potential growth markets,” Vincent Tong, executive director for Asia-Pacific at Xilinx, told the Global Times.

As the market becomes more fractured and companies almost cannot simply supply one specific product anymore, people will turn more and more to FPGA technology, Tong said, noting that FPGA has great potential to be applied in industrial surveillance and medical equipment areas in China.
