Data I/O Sweeps the 2018 Industry Awards Season for UFS support on LumenX

Redmond, WA, November 15, 2018 – Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO) announces that it received the 2018 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Programming for its UFS device programming support for automotive applications on the Lumen®X programming platform. The award was presented to the company on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 in a ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum. This marks the company’s fifth award for UFS programming technology.

“Faced with a 10x growth in file sizes and a technology transition from eMMC to UFS Flash Memory, automotive electronics manufactures need a programming technology capable of supporting the latest Flash Memory technology while maintaining production throughput.  The LumenX programming platform is architected to support the latest device technologies at maximum performance today and in the future,” said Anthony Ambrose, President and CEO of Data I/O Corporation.  “We are thrilled to be recognized with the Mexico Technology Award, our fifth industry award for UFS support on LumenX this year.  Data I/O’s UFS support provides optimal programming performance, capacity and manageability to meet high-volume production demands while delivering the lowest total cost of ownership.  Data I/O customers who have already purchased LumenX programmers can quickly and easily upgrade to UFS, protecting their investment.”

Automotive electronics programmable flash content is projected to grow from 32GB to over 3 TB and beyond by 2025; driven primarily by infotainment systems and connected and autonomous cars. Universal Flash Storage (UFS) is the next generation flash memory used in the latest automotive designs to support the projected growth in programmable content.  The LumenX programming platform is architected to deliver the highest programming performance for eMMC and UFS flash memory today and is extensible to meet projected performance requirements in the future.

UFS support is available on the LumenX Desktop or integrated into the PSV5000 and PSV7000 automated programming systems.  With over 200 PSV systems installed globally, existing customers can protect their investments and easily upgrade their PSV systems to support UFS as their production requirements change.  The combination of LumenX programming technology in a PSV system delivers the maximum performance, flexibility and throughput for the lowest total cost.

The Mexico Technology Awards recognize the best new innovations in the electronics manufacturing industry in Mexico. The goal of the award program is to celebrate the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving the industry forward.
