(NASDAQ:XLNX) have joined forces to bring a high-performance open acceleration framework to data centers. The companies are collaborating on the specification for the new Cache Coherent Interconnect for Accelerators (CCIX).  For the first time in the industry, a single interconnect technology specification will ensure that processors using different  instruction set architectures (ISA) can coherently share data with accelerators and enable efficient heterogeneous computing – significantly improving compute efficiency for servers running data center workloads.</p> <p>Accelerating applications in the data center has become a requirement due to power and space constraints. Applications such as big data analytics, search, machine learning, NFV, wireless 4G/5G, in-memory database processing, video analytics, and network processing, benefit from acceleration engines that need to move data seamlessly among the various system components. CCIX will allow these components to access and process data irrespective of where it resides, without the need for complex programming environments.

portfolio covering all three families:  Virtex, Kintex and Zynq.  These products closely follow the delivery of our 20nm UltraScale family, which includes the industry's only 20nm high-end FPGA.  Three consecutive generations of leadership technology at 28nm, 20nm and 16nm showcase the execution of our world class development in collaboration with our foundry partner, TSMC.   </li> <li>The Company's highly successful 20nm Ultrascale family approached <span class="xn-money">$100M</span> in sales in fiscal 2016, surpassing the Company's forecasts in every quarter of the fiscal year.   This family, which includes the PLD industry's only high-end family, is receiving adoption in a broad base of applications including wired and wireless communications, test &amp; measurement, industrial and defense applications. </li> <li>The 28nm product family continues on the path to be the PLD industry's most successful product family in history.  Sales from these products reached a record level as Xilinx exited the fiscal year, driven by the Zynq product family which contributed more to incremental sales growth than any other new product in fiscal 2016. Zynq continues to drive new market adoption in areas such as augmented reality, driver assist and machine vision. </li> <li>During fiscal 2016, Xilinx paid its shareholders a record <span class="xn-money">$319 million</span> in dividends and repurchased 9.7 million shares for <span class="xn-money">$443 million</span>.  Additionally, Xilinx increased its quarterly dividend by <span class="xn-money">$0.02</span> per share to <span class="xn-money">$0.33</span> per share, the 11<sup>th</sup> consecutive year of dividend increases since initiating its first dividend in 2004.  Xilinx has returned 100% of operating cash flow to stockholders in the form of dividend and share repurchase over the past ten years.      </li> <li>Xilinx announced strategic collaborations with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and IBM to accelerate data center applications. These collaborations are expected to enable higher performance and energy-efficient data center applications through Xilinx FPGA-enabled workload acceleration.  Target applications include machine learning, network functions virtualization (NFV), genomics, high performance computing and big data analytics. </li> <li>In the last year, Xilinx completed rollout of its SDx family of software defined development environments, significantly expanding its target user base to a much larger community of systems and software engineers.</li></ul> <p><b>Business Outlook – June Quarter Fiscal 2017 </b></p> <ul type="disc"> <li>Sales are expected to be approximately flat sequentially. </li> <li>Gross margin is expected to be 69% to 70%. </li> <li>Operating expenses are expected to be approximately <span class="xn-money">$220 million</span> including <span class="xn-money">$1 million</span> of amortization of acquisition-related intangibles.  </li> <li>Other income and expenses are expected to be a net expense of approximately <span class="xn-money">$5 million</span>. </li> <li>Fully diluted share count is expected to be approximately 266 million. </li> <li>June quarter tax rate is expected to be approximately 14%.</li></ul> <p><b>Conference Call</b></p> <p>A conference call will be held today at <span class="xn-chron">2:00 p.m. Pacific Time</span> to discuss the March quarter financial results and management's outlook for the June quarter.
