Data I/O's FlashCORE III Recognized as a Benchmark for Excellence With a 2010 VISION Award

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2010) -  Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO) announces that it has been awarded a 2010 SMT VISION Award in the category of Device Programming for its FlashCORE III. The award was presented to the company on Monday, April 5, 2010 at a ceremony that took place in the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas before the start of APEX 2010.

FlashCORE III offers significant performance gains by increasing the download and read/write speeds by a factor of ten. With support for the latest flash memory devices including SD, MMC, MoviNAND and iNAND, FlashCORE III is the best programming engine on the market supporting large devices.

"Product data file sizes, ranging from Kilobytes to multiple Gigabytes, are getting larger with every new software release, requiring more time to program. Electronics manufacturers can be assured that they will be able to keep up with their production demands, despite these growing file sizes, by using FlashCORE III. They also benefit by experiencing the highest programming yields and readily available support for all varieties of flash and microcontrollers," said Phil Christenson, Director of Marketing.

Recently, multiple wireless handset manufacturers have begun production of new products using high-density semiconductor devices. Their current programming solution could not keep up with its demanding production requirements. To solve the problem, the companies installed Data I/O's FlashCORE III programmers, allowing them to exceed their production throughput, yield and quality levels.

Data I/O's automated handling systems, FlashPAK III manual programmer and Process Control software applications all support FlashCORE III, allowing customers to seamlessly transfer job profiles (algorithms, data files and programming parameters) from design through manufacturing.

FlashCORE III also is compatible with all existing FlashCORE algorithms and adapters, giving customers the largest library of NAND support and Bad Block schemes available anywhere. Field upgrade kits are available for existing automated system installations.

Now in its 18th year, the SMT VISION Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology in key areas are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
