Founded in 1952, Japan Aviation Electronics Industry, Ltd. (JAE) is a global leading manufacturer of interconnect solutions. The firm’s headquarters is located in Tokyo, Japan, and it has 12 production facilities in North America, Asia, and Europe. The corporation serves its clients with almost 8,000 employees worldwide.
JAE primarily makes electronic components for operators in the consumer electronics, mobile device, lighting, datacenter, utility, robotics, factory, automotive, railway, and medical industries.
The corporation's lineup features cable to cable, coaxial, input-output, board to board, circular, rectangular, memory card and module, fiber-optic, and high current connectors. It also offers charging and discharging plugs, crimping tools, and various motion and sensing products.
In 1955, JAE began producing its first connector products thanks to a licensing agreement with Cannon. Within a decade, the firm designed and released its first industrial solution. After that, it launched cutting-edge offerings for the automotive, consumer device, and networking sectors. As its portfolio became more extensive, its footprint expanded beyond Japan until it became a worldwide components provider.
JAE’s presence even transcended earthly boundaries in 2005. Its servo accelerometers helped the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency’s “Hayabusa” probe survey a near-Earth asteroid.
The spirit of innovation that helped the company become an out of this world success is evident in its latest releases.
The corporation recently introduced a new addition to its popular JL10 Series connector portfolio. The new variation has the same waterproofing and one-touch mating capability as its older counterparts. But it also features a more efficient contact arrangement type that combines brake and power supply functions. That update makes an elegant and compact solution for new automated machine concepts.
JAE’s yearning for technological advancement will ensure it continues to be a prominent player in the global electronic components industry.
