@markhahn: it seems that way... QLogic will remain the only non-Mellanox Silicon with its TrueScale ASIC. One difference is QLogic also has silicon for converged ethernet and fiber channel ideal for FCoE, whereas, Mellanox makes PHyX, a much broader multi-protocol 10GigE PHY to literally connects all forms of physical layers XAUI , XFI, SFI or 10GBASE-KR, 10GbaseT, etc. Interesting consolidation in the IB marketplace with Mellanox acquiring Voltaire. Frankly, Mellanox may do better in the multi protocol products than the core InfiniBand products now that 10G products are becoming mainstream and 40G/100G products are off the drawing board.

at least to Qlogic, this is interesting. can't make any real difference to the rest of IB's so-called ecosystem, since Mellanox produced the heart of Voltaire's products anyway. is Qlogic's Infinipath NIC the only non-Mellanox chip keeping IB from being entirely single-source?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
