Data I/O and Matthew Associates Feature Industry Leading FlashPAK III and ProLine RoadRunner at SMT Nutmeg Expo & Tech Forum

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO), the leading provider of manual and automated device programming solutions and Matthew Associates, will showcase its FlashPAK III and ProLINE-RoadRunner™ at the upcoming table top SMT Nutmeg Expo & Tech Forum November 17, 2010 in Crown Plaza Southbury, Southbury, Connecticut.

The FlashPAK III Networked Programming System is the third generation programming architecture specifically designed to support the latest high-density Flash memory, NAND Flash, Managed NAND Flash, Microcontroller and EEPROM devices at maximum programming speeds and highest quality per device keeping your production processes running at maximum velocity.

In addition to the extensive library of existing FlashPAK support for Flash, NAND and Microcontrollers, the FlashPAK III adds the capability to efficiently program all types of managed NAND devices like MoviNAND, iNAND, eMMC etc., and devices of any size.

Capable of reading and writing to devices at speeds greater than ten MBytes/second, FlashPAK III is designed to give the highest production throughput possible. In addition, the job download speed has been improved dramatically to enable fast job changeovers. Finally, the field configurable FPGA can be optimized for any device.

FlashPAK III is a standalone system, ideal for first article builds and NPI applications. As products move to higher volume production, the programming tasks can be easily transferred to Data I/O's automated FlashCORE programming systems without altering the programming itself.

Data I/O will also feature the ProLINE-RoadRunner™, a high speed automated inline programming feeder that mounts directly onto an SMT machine without consuming any additional floor space or altering the production line. The RoadRunner removes unprogrammed Flash Memory devices from tape, programs four devices in parallel, and then delivers the programmed parts to the pick-up point of the placement machine.

The RoadRunner is a Just-In-Time inline programming system and features FlashCORE III, the fastest flash programming architecture available on the market today. In addition, the programmer provides a dramatic reduction in inventory carrying and rework costs, as well as a rapid ROI in only a matter of months.

The ProLINE-RoadRunner can be operated both locally and through a network interface. Design changes can be made as needed and downloaded directly to the RoadRunner's own IP address. The ProLINE-RoadRunner™ also provides PC Card Support for data and job transfer on Windows 95/98, Windows NT/2000, and Windows-XP. Built in diagnostics and job statistics are written to the RoadRunner's PC card and the statistics are saved back to TaskLink allowing the user to analyze production yields and throughput.
