Data I/O Corporation Introduces New Automated Solution for Flash Media Duplication, Supporting Flash Cards and BGA Format SD & MMC Solutions

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO), the leader in programming solutions for flash-based applications, has announced the introduction of Flash Media Duplicator, a new application extension of Data I/O's innovative desktop automation equipment specifically designed for the rapidly growing market for flash card duplication.

Flash Media Duplicator is a solution designed to support flash media that uses the SD and MMC file formats for managed NAND, including small format portable media cards as well as BGA package versions of this technology. Flash Media Duplicator is for OEM users of flash media, either in embedded applications or for duplication of in-box flash cards.

Flash Media Duplicator delivers a high level of production control through automation and system integration that is not attainable through existing manual card duplication products, streamlining production with stand-alone operation or networked with a company's ERP system to remove process decisions and set-up from the shop floor. Copy protection management features permit secure duplication of valuable content and adds value by protecting IP. A unique duplication engine is integrated in Data I/O's proven robotics system to provide unparalleled write speeds of over 8.5MB/sec and automated throughput of up to 750 cards per hour, replacing today's costly, slow and error prone manual processes.

"Manufacturers and OEM integrators are finding new and creative ways to deliver content inside or alongside their products but have had no efficient means of duplicating cards other than racks of plug-in or cartridge based manual copy boxes," said Harald Weigelt, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Data I/O Corporation. "The Flash Media Duplication solution represents the joining of Data I/O's experience in robotics and knowledge of programming with the duplication market in a way that delivers real value in a well managed process for content delivery on flash media," said Mr. Weigelt.
