QualityLogic Expands Executive Team to Support Continued Growth

Names Bridgeman Carney as New General Manager of Services

MOORPARK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 26, 2007 -- QualityLogic (www.qualitylogic.com) announced today that it has expanded its executive team with the addition of Bridgeman (Bridge) Carney as its General Manager of Services. The new position was added to support QualityLogic's plans for growing its business and reports directly to the CEO. Carney will direct the development and growth of test services, including new service initiatives within QualityLogic. COO Dave Jollota, who formerly managed both tools and services, will continue to focus on defining and marketing QualityLogic's test tools.

Carney is taking on a service organization with four primary service offerings. These include: contract test services for major technology companies at QualityLogic's Boise, ID and Moorpark, CA labs; onsite managed services for QA; certification test services for companies like Microsoft; and competitive testing projects for imaging industry OEMs for both internal and public purposes.

Carney has a broad background in the print-imaging market, including technical, marketing and sales expertise. He ran the Customer Service Group and Marketing for the legendary printer company Anadex (later purchased by Printronix); was Director of Marketing of another specialty printer producer, AMT; and was Director of Pacific Rim Sales at Peerless Systems, an independent provider of image controller designs. More recently, Carney was Director of U.S. OEM sales at Xircom; VP of Sales and Marketing at Absolute Analysis, a provider of network analyzers; and VP of Sales and Marketing at Quantum Parametrics, a provider of test tools and services for IEEE 1394 (FireWire) interfaces.

"Bridge has a great background for this new position," said Jollota. "We anticipate even faster growth this next year, and I am happy Bridge will be here to guide our test services business. These are exciting times for us, and I look forward to working with him."

"Our test services business has been going gang busters," said James Mater, QualityLogic's President and CEO. "It's reached a point where we need a dedicated general manager to insure continued test service excellence and to implement a number of new services. Bridge is the perfect person to take on these tasks."
