Jory started writing software in 1981 on an 8-bit microcomputer with interests in video games, and later, BBS software.
In the early
1990s he had the good opportunity to work alongside some very talented people,
he learned what good code looks like, how to manage it, and how to solve
problems when things go wrong. Soon after this time Jory began developing
communication software products which led to the creation of a boutique
software company that gained international attention. Now, nearly two decades
later, his love for electronics development is expanding from a pet project
to create the electronics prototyping brand you are now visiting,
In 2013 Jory's JDevices project created its first PCB, a dedicated add-on
board for the Arduino Mega platform that provided on-board composite video,
a real-time clock with battery backup, a programmable external timer, and a
facility for making sound. A year later the
z1 Platform was born, offering an
all-in-one Arduino-IDE-compatible solution that operated exclusively on two or
more AA or AAA batteries. Since initial release the z1 Platform has seen three
updates, each improving on the last to provide a simple solution for rapidly
developing automation systems.
In 2016, JDevices produced the radio1
Platform, an all-in-one Arduino-IDE-compatible solution offering a digital
PLL-tuned FM radio with dual audio amplifiers, real-time clock, composite video
output, a great external interface featuring analog volume controller, dedicated menu
buttons, several status indicators, and also a customizable casing enclosure
system to house the device. radio1 has also seen three updates that have upgraded
the quality of the audio amplifiers and audio filter circuitry, added additional
menu buttons for quick preset navigation, modified casing elements to support larger speakers, and software updates which enhance the
experience of programming and using radio1.
Plans for more devices like z1 and radio1 are in the works, and you are invited to
call on us for all your
consulting needs. We intend to be
your long-term solution provider.
