Insights from productronica 2023

productronica 2023, the industry’s largest conference and exhibition for electronics manufacturing, happens every two years in Munich, Germany. We are thrilled to share the latest updates from our recent appearance at the show. This event presented us with a tremendous opportunity to showcase our cutting-edge solutions and engage in insightful discussions on the future of electronics manufacturing. 

During the event, Data I/O President and CEO, Anthony Ambrose, actively contributed to the industry dialogue furthering the discussion on topics including environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance for electronics manufacturers, the importance of securing IoT devices during the device programming process, and the role of device programming in the future of smart factories.  

Anthony Ambrose also presented at the productronica Forum during the event, “Simplifying Hardware-based IoT Security in the Electronics Supply Chain with Pre-defined Use Cases”, and "Industry 4.0: Integrating Offline Automated Device Programming into the Connected Factory for Production Efficiency, Traceability and Quality.” The latter topic sparked interest from IoT Insider, who scheduled time for a follow-up interview to explore the topic of Industry 4.0 and how device programming is going to be a strategic part of any smart factory to increase manufacturing efficiencies in production and traceability throughout the supply chain.  

Also announced at the event were the winners of the 2023 Global Technology Awards, an 18-year-running award ceremony hosted by Global SMT & Packaging. This celebration recognizes the companies and people achieving standards of excellence and driving the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries forward.  Data I/O was honored to receive the Device Programming Award for VerifyBoost™ for Lumen®X
