After a few weeks of rumor, as well as a few years of hearing, AMD went first to the complete acquisition of FPGA maker Xilinx. The deal includes an all-stock exchange, exploiting AMD's sizeable share price to allow an equivalent $143 per Xilinx share – current AMD shareholders will still own 74 percent of the merged business. In comparison, Xilinx shareholders will own 26 percent. The combined $135 billion entity would total 13,000 engineers and increase AMD's total addressable market to $110 billion. The acquisition's main reasons are assumed to be Xilinx's adaptive computing solutions for the data center label.
