Xilinx in $50m expansion of Irish headquarters
July 04, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
Xilinx is to invest $50 million to expand its operations at its European headquarters in Dublin and Cork, recruiting 60 new silicon designers and applications engineers.
The company will recruit 45 senior silicon and electronics engineering staff for its regional headquarters in Dublin and for its engineering centre in Cork as well as a further 15 staff across a broad range of disciplines supporting the continued growth of Xilinx in Ireland.
Xilinx currently employs over 250 at its EMEA headquarters and the investment will support development work for advanced technologies and products where the Irish arm already works with Xilinx’s Programmable Platforms Group (PPG) in California on 7 series FPGAs, Zynq-7000 SoCs, Virtex-7 3D ICs and the Vivado Design Suite.
“We’re very pleased with this investment, which endorses the quality of advanced engineering and product development work being undertaken by Xilinx Ireland where everyone is an important contributor to the global success of the corporation," said Kevin Cooney, Managing Director of Xilinx in Europe. "This expansion will provide a range of valuable career development opportunities for experienced engineers, as we continue to fulfil our strategic development responsibilities in Ireland. At the same time, it’s symbolic of our steadfast commitment to pioneering ‘all programmable’ technology innovation – far beyond our programmable logic roots – aimed at increasing customer value and expanding our reach to a broad base of design engineers and system architects.”
Xilinx first established operations in Dublin in 1995, subsequently building and expanding operations on its own campus. In 2001 it also invested over €50 million in an expansion of its Dublin facilities as the company’s EMEA headquarters. In 2005 it established an offshoot of Xilinx Research Labs in Dublin and in 2011 it acquired the Belfast-based telecommunications technology firm Omiino.
