In the 1990's Data I/O partnered with vendors to develop a number of industry leading adapter designs including the Package Pin-out Adapters for the 2900/3900/3980xpi, the first universal PLCC/LLC socket adapter and the FlashTOP Adapter.

FlashTOP Adapter: 1999 - First Flash Gang Socket
While competitive programmer companies were boasting that single socket concurrent and asynchronous programming is the wave of the future, Data I/O developed the first Gang Socket Adapter enabling users of high density Flash to quadruple their programming capacity of their existing Data I/O equipment. Today, most leading programming equipment suppliers have adopted the gang programming adapter model.
