In the coming week, the chip manufacturer AMD could buy the FPGA specialist Xilinx and so on to catch up with Intel. The deal could be worth around $ 30 billion.

As the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reports, AMD and Xilinx are in takeover talks. The newspaper claims to have found out from insiders who are familiar with the matter.

AMD could buy Xilinx via a share swap.

According to this, AMD should be worth up to 30 billion dollars. Xilinx's market valuation as of Thursday was around $ 26 billion. According to the WSJ, it is still open whether the deal will actually come about. Should an agreement be reached, it could be announced as early as next week. However, that should not be certain. Talks had already taken place before that were broken off and now continued. It is not known what the sticking point in the negotiations could be.

AMD itself is worth over 100 billion dollars after the positive business development in the current year. Still, the company could not raise the acquisition with cash. These are estimated at a few billion dollars.

However, AMD can use its own increased market value to buy Xilinx with AMD stock. Nvidia recently designed the purchase of ARM in the same way. After this with around 40 billion dollars to date, the largest acquisition of 2020 in the semiconductor industry, the Xilinx deal would follow in second place.

Xilinx manufactures programmable logic chips

Xilinx is a leading manufacturer of so-called FPGA chips (Field Programmable Gate Arrays). These are chips that can be reprogrammed during operation and are thus suitable for prototyping, for example. ARM's chip developers first test new chip designs on Xilinx's FPGA IC.

A trip that is part of his "desire to form a family, with his children and mine" as he had assured in the columns of Gala, in 2018. However, everything does not go as planned in Corsica ...

programmable logic chips are also important outside of prototyping. For example, they are often used in 5G networks to quickly implement and test new technologies. Other rapidly developing technologies such as networks in data centers or military facilities as well as the rapidly changing automotive and aerospace markets are predestined fields of application for the Xilinx FPGA.

Deal moves AMD closer to Intel

For AMD, the acquisition is an opportunity to get closer to main rival Intel. Intel had already secured access to the programmable logic chip market in 2015 with the takeover of the FPGA manufacturer Altera. In this respect, AMD closes a gap here, after it was able to increase its market share for desktop and server CPUs at the expense of Intel. With desktop CPUs alone, AMD increased its market share to 20 percent by mid-2020, coming from eight percent by mid-2019.

The takeover of Xilinx at this point in time should also have something to do with the fact that Xilinx is in a more difficult position due to the loss of a major customer Fairway. According to this, Xilinx is said to have achieved between six and eight percent of its annual sales with the Chinese Huawei group. This business has completely collapsed.

Consolidation of the semiconductor industry in full swing

Should AMD succeed in the deal, the company would have chips for the most important applications. The only thing missing would be the addition of AI chips such as Nvidia with its tensor cores in its portfolio.

Consolidation in the semiconductor industry is also in full swing elsewhere. In Germany, Infineon took over its US competitor Cypress for nine billion euros a few months ago. After all, the US semiconductor company Analog Devices had the takeover of its competitor Maxim Integrated Products cost it 20 billion.

Letters to the editor: Why I'll be wearing a poppy on November 11th .
Please wear a poppy on Remembrance Day. Lest we forget Re: Legion goes online with annual poppy sale fundraiser , Oct. 3 With every passing year, I see fewer and fewer people wearing a poppy. This year being the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, many Canadians have forgotten or know very little about this war. There are only about 33,200 surviving Second World War veterans in Canada. When they and my generation of baby boomers, whose parents were greatly impacted by the war, pass on, what history of this event will be preserved? The Second World War generation has been called “the greatest generation.” In Canada, women worked in armament factories.
