News is coming today that an expected 100 jobs are to go at Xilinx’s (www.xilinx.com)plant in City West, Dublin. There is a planned staff meeting where the management are expected to outline the companies restructuring plans and expect job losses.
Current Xilinx employs over 400 workers at the European Headquarters in Dublin, which is the location of their main customer care offices. Xilinx are supplies of FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) technology, which allows for customisable logic circuits to be configured, and subsequently reconfigured. This helps companies with prototyping before an actual digital is produced.
