Today, Xilinx announced plans to invest $40M to expand research and development engineering work in Ireland on artificial intelligence and machine learning for strategic markets including cloud computing, embedded vision, IIoT (industrial IoT), and 5G wireless communications. The company already has active development programs in these categories and today’s announcement signals an acceleration of development in these fields. The development was formally announced in Dublin today by The Tánaiste (Deputy Prime Minister of Ireland) and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald T.D., and by Kevin Cooney, Senior Vice President, Chief Information Officer and Managing Director EMEA, Xilinx Inc. The new investment is supported by the Irish government through IDA Ireland.

 

Xilinx first established operations in Dublin in 1995. Today, the company employs 350 people at its EMEA headquarters in Citywest, Dublin, where it operates a research, product development, engineering, and an IT center along with centralized supply, finance, legal, and HR functions. Xilinx also has R&D operations in Cork, which the company established in 2001.
