Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to the upcoming announcement.
Factors at Play
Xilinx’s third-quarter results are likely to have benefited from solid demand for its Zynq platform, which is rising on the adoption of the multiprocessor system on a chip family in wireless services and across core vertical markets. Moreover, the growing demand for the company’s 60-nanometer UltraScale+ family is likely to have been a key growth driver.
Furthermore, increased demand for cloud-based storage and services on pandemic-induced social-distancing measures is anticipated to have benefited XLNX’s data-center business during the fiscal third quarter.
Additionally, data-center revenues are likely to have increased in the quarter under review backed by the business expansion at multiple hyperscalers. Its partnerships with companies, including Alibaba, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Tencent Cloud and Baidu Cloud, are also expected to have been an upside for Xilinx’s data-center business during the fiscal third quarter.
Also, its core markets, including the Wired and Wireless Group, and Automotive, Broadcast and Consumer businesses, are witnessing a strong recovery from pandemic-led business disruptions. This trend is likely to have boosted Xilinx’s revenues in the to-be-reported quarter.
However, XLNX’s fiscal third-quarter performance is expected to have been affected by the Huawei ban and other trade-related uncertainties along with the pandemic’s crippling impact on its business.
