Breakthrough Systems Announces SCSI Target Mode Driver Support for New QLogic 2400 Series 4Gb Fibre Channel ASICs and HBAs

Breakthrough Systems Announces SCSI Target Mode Driver Support for New QLogic 2400 Series 4Gb Fibre Channel ASICs and HBAs

LAFAYETTE, Colo., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Breakthrough Systems has formally released their latest generation of semi-custom Target Mode Drivers and upper level protocol stacks for use with QLogic's new product line of 4Gb Fibre Channel 2400 controller ASIC and HBA products.

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."

Breakthrough has existing modules for all of the most relevant instances of the five key parameters for architecting a TMD:

* Specific controller chip (i.e. ISP24XX) * Operating System (Linux, RTLinux, Windows, Solaris, VxWorks and other embedded RTOS) * Controller/Motherboard Processor (x86, Xscale/ARM, PPC, MIPS)

Options beyond the current matrix of modules are available on a custom quote basis.

Once an OEM selects the relevant values in each of these categories Breakthrough can very quickly configure and test a semi-custom TMD and optionally the SCSI upper level protocol stack cutting many months off of the design cycle and allowing the OEM's own engineering team to focus on their unique value add rather than on the fundamental storage product connectivity issues.
