Japan Aviation Electronics Industry (JAE) Limited was established in Tokyo in 1953 as a manufacturer of electronic components and assemblies for the aerospace market. Since then, it has grown into a billion dollar organisation which designs and manufactures standard and custom products ranging from connectors and switches to operating panels, displays, optical data links and space systems. JAE is among the world's top ten manufacturers of electronic connectors, a position that it has attained as a result of very high levels of investment in R&D. Over 70% of the company's revenue now comes from sales of connectors into applications in the telecommunications, computing, consumer electronics, automotive and aerospace sectors.
The company's standard connector portfolio incorporates high-precision, high-quality through-hole and surface-mount devices for board-to-board, board-to-cable and board-to-FPC/FFC applications, alongside PC card connectors, IC sockets and a variety of rectangular and circular devices.
