Design with Silicon Valley in Mind Administrating by Taiwanese Manufacturing in China
Due to the change of company mission and gradual broadening of product portfolio, after 17 years of its first inception, effective Jan 1st, 2010 "DataStor Technology Co., Ltd." was officially changed to "Omnitech Innovation, Inc."
Established in 1993 with the original name DataStor Technology Co., Ltd.
Based in Taipei, Taiwan, Omnitech designed and manufactured Personal-Connectivity solutions for computing and entertainment applications.
With the engineers from Silicon Valley, California USA, Omnitech leveraged the most cutting-edge system hardware/software design technologies and the highest quality manufacturing capability in Taiwan and China.
Omnitech's initial product was a Parallel Port to IDE Single-Chip ASIC(EP2000) which permitted various applications for connecting Hard Disk, CD-ROM, CD-RW, Flash Card Reader and Iomega Clik! Drive memory products to PCs.
To overcome the limited expandability problem of portable computers, Omnitech designed the PCMCIA to IDE ASIC solution (PCM3000) to connect external storage devices to the PCMCIA port.
o This product enabled Omnitech to become the world's leading PCMCIA external storage device supplier.
o The chip was selected by lomega for the PCMCIA type II Clik! drives.
To respond to the industry trend of moving I/O technology to high-speed serial interfaces, Omnitech designed a series of peripheral controller chips. Both series follow the industry standard with rich features, higher performance and lower cost due to the adoption of System-On-Chip (SOC) technology.
o USB4500 (USB2.0 to IDE bridge converter).
o SATA8000 (2nd generation SATA and USB 2.0 combo solution)
Address the booming home networking market, Omnitech introduced a series of network appliance products targeting SOHO, personal and home users, ranging from the data storage, printing and Internet applications.
In September 2010, Omnitech introduced a new series of NAS products powered by high performance PowerPC platform. This allows Omnitech to become a major player in the SMB NAS market. By using its core technology, various products are developed around it.
In 2014, a brand new IoT based smart home eco-system was introduced. It includes world-leading single-wire power switch which works with existing light switches without any wiring change.
During 2016, an innovative Internet-based display/signage eco-system was launched.
In addition to the complete line of existing "Data Storage" products, Omnitech is adding "IoT Smart Places (Office/Classroom/Home/Factory/Market/City)" and "Digital Content Publishing System" as its new company directions. Based on the home-grown core technology, Omnitech will bring more diversified products to the market faster and with lower cost. With all the experience accumulated for the past 25 years, Omnitech is better, stronger and even more ready to face the challenges of years to come.
