One half of JED's business is Audio/Visual Control Systems for serial RS232 or IR remote control of video projectors, and LCD or Plasma flat panels, along with audio levels, screens and lighting . (These more specialised products grew out of single board computers which were pressed into service controlling projectors at a local university.)
The range of A/V devices is expanding, and is now sold world-wide through nearly 200 distributors. Users are educational (university to kindergarten), churches and corporate.
JED Microprocessors Pty Ltd began in 1977 and was incorporated in August 1981.
It is still run by the original owners and directors,
Ed and Junette Schoell.
The intent was to design and develop a range of Single Board Computers (SBC) able to be used by scientists and engineers who needed to embed a small computer into their systems. These cards are now based on the Wilke Tiny Tiger and on the Atmel AVR.
While it started with only “standard” cards, (as shown on this web site) the majority of our sales in this area are custom products, often based on concepts pioneered on the standard boards but customized, e.g. by adding displays, 802.11 radios or special I/O.
JED makes communications and interface devices, e.g. opto-isolated RS232 to RS485, 20mA loop and Midi devices, RS232 to relays, FETS and IR, contact closure and opto input to RS232, and also an RS232 hex multiplexer on a DIN rail.
