Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced its business update for the December quarter of fiscal 2007.
* The Company now expects December quarter sales to be down 2% to 5% sequentially due to weaker than anticipated turns business in the month of November, particularly from communications customers. This is a revision from previous sales guidance of up 2% to 5% sequentially. * Gross margin guidance is expected to be unchanged at 61% to 62%, including approximately $2 million of stock-based compensation charges.
