Shiv started buying from Haltech but needed more programming support than they could provide. So they put him in contact with Adrian. It got too expensive for Haltech so they let Shiv pay Adrian directly for support, and finally allowed Adrian to license use of the hardware he had designed working for them. As part of that license Haltech still builds the hardware for some set fee.
Adrian still works for another company and helps Shiv part time doing firmware updates.
For the long timers it's funny to hear the real story, as Shiv had outright denied working with Haltech around 4 years ago when switching from the XEde. Despite the obvious signs (like Haltech printed on the PROcede circuit board!)
Anyway Haltech offers a variety of newer interceptor type products and seems open to anyone in terms of volume licensing. Although Adrian is probably locked up exclusively with Shiv through some sort of consulting agreement. Not that we have any interest in that as we have the capability to design our own stuff but anyone with the money and interest can pursue it with Haltech. Some of their new stuff is pretty impressive!
