Data I/O's FlashCORE III Wins a 2010 NPI Award

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - April 8, 2010) -  Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO) announces that it has been awarded an NPI Award in the category of Device Programming for its FlashCORE III. The award was presented to the company on Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at a ceremony that took place during APEX 2010 in the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

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.

"High-density devices and file sizes are increasing at an exponential rate in the automotive and consumer electronic markets," notes Fred Hume, President and CEO. "FlashCORE III eliminates production bottlenecks by delivering vital production throughput gains to customers using cutting edge devices in their products."

Recently, multiple wireless handset manufacturers have begun production of new product using high-density semiconductor devices. Their current programming solution could not keep up with its demanding production requirements. To solve the problem, the company 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.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI 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 are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
