Breakthrough has been the primary independent supplier of embedded drivers for QLogic controller products to the storage OEM community for over a decade. By providing semi-custom embedded drivers from their modular library and architecture, the company reduces the upfront expense to OEMs and at a sharply reduced time to market. By leveraging Breakthrough's existing modular architecture they can also reduce the inherent invention risk of coding a custom driver from scratch.

"We are happy to continue to have Breakthrough Systems as our Target Mode Driver Support Partner," said Amit Vashi, senior director of marketing, QLogic. "They have consistently delivered the highest levels of quality and reliable drivers to our OEM customers."


"QLogic has been our interface ASIC and HBA partner for many years," said John LoPorto, Breakthrough's CEO. "Their competitors offer example target mode drivers that are minimally functional and essentially extended ASIC documentation. The partnership between Breakthrough and QLogic offers OEMs not only a fully functional and SANmark(TM) tested Target Mode Driver but also the option to deliver advanced storage networking features without tying up scarce OEM internal resources."
