Xilinx presents this award annually to recognize a key supplier for its outstanding efforts and contributions to the company's success.
"TSMC earned our 2012 Best Supplier Award for collaborating deeply with Xilinx to establish clear technology leadership, product quality, on time delivery, and continuous yield enhancement. This has already led to significant revenue growth and market share advantages at 28nm, a break-out product portfolio consisting of system-optimized FPGAs and the industry's first All Programmable 3D ICs and SoCs," said Raja Petrakian, senior vice president, worldwide operations at Xilinx. "With our recently announced tape-out of the industry's first 20nm UltraScale™ devices and collaboration on our FinFast™ program for the fastest time to market and performance at 16nm, Xilinx and TSMC continue to push the boundaries of what is possible with All Programmable devices."
"Our relationship with Xilinx is an excellent example of what is possible when companies work together to address complex challenges and solve them, smoothing the path for even greater progress in the future," said Rick Cassidy, Vice President, TSMC and President, TSMC North America. "We are honored to be recognized by Xilinx with this award, and look forward to strengthening our bond and collaboration in the years to come."
