Xilinx Revises Outlook for March Quarter

SAN JOSE, Calif.
Mar 5, 2001

Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today revised its guidance for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2001.

  -- The month of February was weaker than anticipated due to decelerating
     bookings and ongoing cancellations from a broad base of customers.
     February resales were down versus November.
  -- For the first two months of the quarter, North American resales were
     down over 20% sequentially.  International resales are approximately
     flat for the quarter.
  -- Inventories at Xilinx are expected to approximate seven months at the
     end of the March quarter.
  -- As a result, Xilinx expects sequential revenues to decline by as much
     as 15% in the March quarter.
  -- There will be no conference call in conjunction with this announcement.
     Our fourth quarter fiscal 2001 financial results will be released on
     April 19th, 2001 after the close of the market.  During our earnings
     release conference call, we will provide additional guidance for the
     June quarter as well as for fiscal 2002.
