QLogic sells IB adapters with their own IB silicon, as well as Mellanox's silicon.  We brand the QLogic ASICs as 'TrueScale.'
Here's a press release on the DDR adapters (currently shipping) based on QLogic TrueScale ASICs:

the adapter models, listed at the top, starting with 'QLE' (QLE7140, QLE7240, QLE7280) use QLogic silicon.  

And the forthcoming InfiniBand QDR & DDR switches based on QLogic TrueScale ASICs were announced here, and at SC'08:
