REF: A) BIS e-mail PLC request dated August 12, 2009 B) D421812 C)
HK 00797 (2009)

1. Unauthorized disclosure of the information provided below is
prohibited by Section 12C of the Export Administration Act.

2. As per reftel A request and at the direction of the Office of
Enforcement Analysis (OEA) of the USDOC Bureau of Industry and
Security (BIS), Export Control Officer Philip Ankel (ECO), attempted
to conduct a pre-license check at Xian Jason Electronics Technology,
Flat K, 14F, World Tech Centre, 95 How Ming Street, Kwun Tong (Xian
Jason Electronics). The purpose of the visit was to determine the
suitability of Xian Jason Electronics to be the ultimate consignee
(but not end user) of various high density programmable logic
devices that are the subject of export license application D421812.
The items (ECCN 3A001) are controlled for national security (NS)
reasons. The license applicant is Benchmark Connector Corp. of
Sunrise, Florida and the stated end user in the license application
is Shaanxi Shiyouyiqi Ltd. of Xian, China.

3. A search of the Hong Kong Companies Registry revealed no entry
for Xian Jason Electronics

4. Background research on the web did not uncover any web presence
for Xian Jason Electronics. Jason Electronics is a Singapore based
company (www.jason.com.sg), however, that company's web site does
not list any mainland China locations.

5. On August 17, 2009, FCS Commercial Assistant Carrie Chan
attempted to reach the company and arrange a meeting. A Ms. Lau
answered the phone. Ms. Lau declined to identify her company's name
although she confirmed that the phone number (provided to ECO by
OEA) corresponds to an electronics trading company in Hong Kong.
She claimed ignorance of Xian Jason Electronics and expressed her
frustration that other companies were using her mailing address
without informing her. Ms. Lau later stated that she had checked
with some of her mainland Chinese clients, none of whom stated that
they knew Jason Electronics. Ms. Lau further stated that one of
those clients told her that a friend may have ordered this
particular part, presumably for delivery to Ms. Lau's business
address.

6. On August 20, 2009, ECO went to visit the purported address for
Xian Jason Electronics. It corresponds to the address for Techpro
Technology HK Co. Ltd. That company was the subject of a prior
unfavorable EUC in which a Ms. Lau from Techpro provided what the
ECO believes to be false information concerning another, unrelated
order.

7. Based on the information detailed heren, ECO believes Xian
Jason Electronics to be an unsuitable recipient of U.S. origin
controlled commodities. ECO recommends a close review of all
shipments to the World Tech Center address noted above as well as
any shipments to Techpro Technology HK Co. Ltd.
