Unibrain - The 1394 Innovators
About Unibrain
Unibrain (Reuters: UNBr.AT) is a global leader in the development of FireWire (IEEE-1394)
hardware and software solutions, and offers a complete line of FireWire products for a wide
range of applications. Unibrain has been an active member of the 1394 Trade Association since
1997 and continues to play a vital role in the advancement of FireWire technology. Moreover,
the last few years Unibrain expanded to new developments in storage and multimedia technologies.
Unibrain S.A. was founded in 1986 in Athens and in 2000 it established Unibrain Inc. in San
Ramon, California, USA to promote, sell and support its customers in the United States. At the
same year, Unibrain entered into a strategic alliance with Intracom S.A. the largest Greek new
technologies company with domestic and international activity. Unibrain is a public company
traded in the New Market (NEXA) of the Athens Stock Exchange from April 30th, 2001.
Unibrain uses the OEM model to promote integrated solutions of hardware and software to the
market. According to this strategy, Unibrain is responsible for the design folder (hardware, software and know-how) which is adapted to the requirements of the final customer. Each customer can promote its own product to the global market and Unibrain earns from the license.
Unibrain has signed significant cooperation agreements with big enterprises, like Packard Bell,
Logitech, MacPower, Iomega and Gtech. The production of the final product is assigned to big
Asian manufacturing companies, such as MacPower and Xingtel. Unibrain chooses this strategy
to promote its business, leaving the retail to other big companies with strong brand names.
Unibrain also sells software license to big companies like Texas Instruments, Philips, Rockwell
Collins, Xerox, Siemens.
