Martin Brennan is a computer engineer who developed pioneering personal computers such as the Loki (for Sinclair Research) and the Atari Jaguar video game console.

A physics graduate of Cambridge University, he was a co-founder of Flare Technology,[1] a design house involved in the design of the ill-fated Konix Multisystem.

Brennan initially worked for Sinclair Research where he designed the digital electronics and software in ZX Interface 1 before going on to found Flare with ex-Sinclair colleagues John Mathieson and Ben Cheese. After working at Flare on the Flare 1 and its development into the Konix Multisystem he went on to work for Atari developing the Atari Panther and the Atari Jaguar.

In 1997 Brennan founded the "Cheap & Cheerful Chip Company" which later went on to become Global Silicon Limited[2]

In 2007 Brennan designed the Brennan JB7 digital jukebox[3] produced by 3GA Ltd (Third Generation Audio)
