One half of Jed Micro'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.
The original company, JED Microprocessors Pty Ltd began in 1977 and was incorporated in August 1981. It was run until recently by the original owners and directors, Ed and Junette Schoell (now retired).
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 based on the Wilke Tiny Tiger and on the Atmel AVR, and are covered via the Single Board Computer link below.
A new company, Jed Micro Pty Ltd recently took over the operations of JED Microprocessors Pty Ltd, and continues the manufacture, sales and support of both the A/V and the single board computer products. This company is owned by Rolf Niklaus, the long-time production manager of JED microprocessors, and Julie O'Grady, ensuring continuity of product and product expertise.
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.
