Xilinx earmarks $50million for Irish expansion

Xilinx plans to invest $50million to expand its electronics engineering operations at its EMEA headquarters in Dublin and Cork.

The company will recruit 45 senior silicon and electronics engineering staff for its regional headquarters and a further 15 staff from a range of disciplines to support its continued growth in Ireland.

The new investment and immediate recruitment will support Xilinx's high level development work for advanced technologies and products already established in Ireland and the US. The company's Programmable Platforms Group (PPG) based in California is responsible for the development and delivery of the company's 'All Programmable' product portfolio, including 7 series fpgas, Zynq-7000 SoCs, Virtex-7 3D ICs and Vivado Design Suite.

"This expansion will provide a range of valuable career development opportunities for experienced engineers, as we continue to fulfil our strategic development responsibilities in Ireland," commented Kevin Cooney, managing director of Xilinx in Europe.
