“Our fiscal Q1 revenue was well above the initial guidance despite ongoing business challenges from COVID-19 and global trade issues,” said Xilinx president and CEO Victor Peng. “Results were driven by strength in the Data Center Group (DCG), Wired and Wireless Group (WWG), and the Industrials market, offsetting expected headwinds in consumer-oriented end markets, including Automotive and Broadcast. The outperformance was due to a combination of strength in multiple end markets, as well as some order acceleration driven by recent additional U.S. government trade restrictions on sales of certain Xilinx products to some customers based, or with operations, in China.”

“Our diversified end markets remain a key strength, and our business continues to perform better than expected even after our revised guidance,” said Xilinx CFO Brice Hill. “This strength is reflected in our results for the first quarter as well as our improved outlook for the fiscal second quarter. We continue to be well positioned to capitalize on opportunities across all our end markets.”
