Xilinx's (XLNX) analyst day yielded favorable sell-side commentary. William Blair is a fan of Xilinx's light opex guidance, 60%+ share of 28nm FPGA sales, high base station design win rate, and the success of its 3D FPGAs and fully-programmable Zynq SoCs. Looking at the big picture, Raymond James sees plenty of room for the ~$6B FPGA market to take share from a ~$50B ASIC/ASSP market, as R&D/manufacturing costs for ASICs continue to grow. But Goldman is more partial to rival Altera (ALTR), citing its 40nm leadership and 14nm deal with Intel. (slides)
