Data I/O Announces FlashCORE III -- New Programming Technology

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2009) - Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO), the leading provider of manual and automated device programming systems and solutions, today announced the release of its new FlashCORE III programming architecture. FlashCORE III is the newest offering of Data I/O's robust FlashCORE programming architecture.

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, a large wireless handset manufacturer began production of their new product using high density semiconductor devices. Their current programming solution could not keep up with their demanding production requirements. To solve their problem, they installed Data I/O's FlashCORE III programmer allowing them to exceed their production throughput.

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

FlashCORE III is also 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.
