Xilinx was chosen from more than 70 public fabless companies in the world. The three finalists, including Broadcom Corporation and NVIDIA Corporation, were selected on the basis of company performance and likelihood of long-term success. Fabless companies, semiconductor financial and industry analysts, and suppliers selected one public fabless company that they most respect in terms of product, vision, strategy and future opportunities.
