Original Press Release:
Data I/O® Corporation Releases v7.3 Update for its Unifamily Programmers Expanding Support to 18,611 Flash, Logic and Microcontroller Devices
Redmond, WA, June 30, 2003 - Data I/O® Corporation (NASDAQ:DAIO), the leading provider of manual and automated programming systems, today announced the release of the version 7.3 update for its Unifamily programmers, expanding support to include 199 additional Flash, logic and microcontroller devices. The release includes updates for the company's UniSite®-xpi(TM)/UniSite, 3900/3980/3980xpi, 2900, AutoSite, and ProMaster programming systems. The additional device support brings the total number of devices supported by Unifamily programmers to 18,611. Updated algorithms are also provided with this release for 464 devices already supported by Unifamily programmers.
Some highlights among the 199 additional devices now supported by the UniSite include:
· New support for 50 devices from AMD, including many 32 and 64Mb Mirrorbit Flash devices for embedded and wireless applications.
· Support for microcontrollers from Hitachi, Cypress, and Microchip Technologies.
· ATMEL CAN Microcontrollers T89C51CC02 - The CANary(TM) 8-bit Flash microcontrollers combine the well known 80C51 functionality with Atmel® advanced Flash technology. Atmel designs these parts to meet the stringent requirements for automotive applications: low current consumption, small size, and insensitivity to harsh operating conditions, EMI/ESD protection and high reliability.
· Lattice ispMACH series low-power CPLDs: LC4032/4064/4128 - According to Lattice, designers of high performance computing and communications systems, which traditionally have had relatively unlimited power budgets, are increasingly interested in lowering power consumption to reduce operating cost and enhance system reliability.
· ST Microelectronics - Support for several M25Pxx serial Flash devices. The 4-Mbit M25P40 and the 8-Mbit M25P80 are targeted at emerging serial code-download in a wide range of applications, including hard disk drives, DVD players, graphics cards, printers, wireless LANs, ADSL, networking, industrial applications and set-top boxes.
The Unifamily v7.3 update release is scheduled to begin shipping to Data I/O customers and distributors June 30, 2003.
Keep Current Express Subscription Service
Programming support for a broad range of devices is important, but keeping up with changes in devices that are already supported can be even more critical. Many programmable devices experience algorithm changes during their lifetimes, requiring new programming algorithms. Data I/O's commitment is to support these changes by providing updates to device algorithms on a regular basis, so customers can be sure they are always using optimal programming algorithms. New and improved algorithms are made available as Keep Current downloads from the Data I/O Web site to all customers whose programmers are covered by a Keep Current update contract.
Version 7.3 provides the new TaskLink for Windows version 5.0 plus all updated algorithm support on a single CD, for all products except 2900. The 7.3 update for the 2900 is provided on floppy diskettes and a TL-Win 5.0 CD.
