Our more than 20 years in the automotive market began with a tire-pressure monitoring battery that was manufactured by Maxell, the global leader in high temperature lithium coin cells that meet Department of Transportation specifications. From there, JLM technologies expanded its product services to audio, displays, camera and auto diagnostics technologies.
We typically select proven consumer electronics technology to apply to the automotive industry. By choosing technology that only requires modification; we can reduce the engineering cycle in half – often cutting the time to 18 months from 36 months. Our proven strategy is to work with advanced engineering teams on new technology roadmaps and execute a fast track development program.
Today, we work with automotive OEMs in North America and Europe. We have strong partnerships with Germany’s top automotive manufacturers: Volkswagen-Audi-Porsche, BMW & Daimler.

Market: Automotive & smart helmets OEMS
AUDIO 3D LABS
Technology: Enhance better sound in any product that has a speaker
Market: OEMs automotive and audio speakers
Audio 3D developed a digital algorithm that can make inexpensive speakers upgrade in sound by a high margin. Audio3D is a game changing technology that transforms poor quality audio into ear popping surround sound. The value added for this technology is that it can do what the best pair of speakers or headset can't do and that is make poor quality audio sound great. Not by increasing the file size but by transforming it through software solution. This can be accomplished with device in an OS or built in chip. Audio3D technology can be layer in network software platform that enhances sound quality.
