Model 120/121: 1981 - 1986
- EPROM production programmers which can program up to 20 EPROMs at a time.
- The two silver handles are designed to open 10 sockets simultaneously.
Model 100A with 200: Data Control Unit: 1981 - 1994 - First Programmer with Disk Storage
- Production programmer designed to work in conjunction with a handler and with a Data Control Unit (DCU) storage device.
- The DCU used 5.25" disks instead of paper tapes or master PROMs.
- Data I/O inquired about purchasing a small local software company "Microsoft" to acquire a Disk Operating System for the DCU.
Model 20A/B: 1981 - 1985 - First Remote Control Programmer
The 20B was an early compact NMOS EPROM only programmer, used to program devices in 24, 28 and 40-pin packages. It could be used as as stand-alone programmer or interactively with a microprocessor development system, computer or terminal.
Series 22: 1983 - 1985 - First Portable Memory Programmer with UV Eraser
The Series 22 was a fully-integrated, portable programmer, for programming EPROMs, EEPROMs and bipolar PROMs. The programmer featured a built in Ultra Violet eraser.
LogicPAK: 1982 - First Universal Logic Programming PAK
The LogicPAK responded to the explosive growth of programmable logic in 1982, following MMI's development of PALASM. It supports virtually all programmable logic devices, including IFLs, PLAs, 40-pin MegaPALs and CMOS devices.
UniPAK, UniPAK2 & UniPAK2B: 1980 / 1983 / 1985 - First Universal Programming Pak
The UniPak was the concept that made the system 10/29A/29b a success by introducing convenient universal programming. It replaced over 30 individual Programming Paks which had evolved by that time. It was designed to program memory devices from numerous device manufacturers. The UniPak gave customers design and purchasing freedom, programming speed and simplicity, error-free programming, measurable reliability and security for the future.
Series 1000: 1986 - 1997 - First 'Copy from Master' or 'Copy from RAM' Gang Programmer
The S1000 was developed to program large quantities of memory and microcontrollers quickly.
The S1000 had removable rails. Notice the lower rail has 15, 28-pin sockets while the top rail has 10, 40-pin sockets. The S1000 with two 28-pin rails is capable of programming up to 30, 28-pin memory devices. With two 40 pin rails installed, the S1000 is capable of programming 20, 40-pin devices.
UniSite 40: 1986 - First PC Controlled Programmer with Universal Pin drivers and Algorithms on Disk
The UniSite 40 set a new standard for universal device support. Based on a software-configured universal pin driver system, the UniSite 40 can program virtually any device available - all in a single site. It also ensures a user's ability to program future devices via user-installable software updates.
The UniSite was the first programmer that required an external terminal or computer to operate. The basic control for the UniSite in 1986 was Hi=Term followed by TaskLink DOS and Windows.
The PinSite module contains 16 pin drivers, extending UniSite device support up to 84 pins. With PinSite, PGAs and surface mount devices including plastic leaded chip carriers (PLCCs), leadless chip carriers (LCCs) and JEDEC standard small outline ICs (SOICs) can all be programmed and tested in one programming site.
Matchbook Adapter: 1987 - First Programming Adapters Using Elastomeric Pads
Designed for the PinSite Adapter used on the UniSite Programmer, Data I/O's matchbook adapter technology supported SMD packages. The Base Adapter supported a variety of package specific matchbooks.
