Data I/O Wins Third Award for Its New Universal Flash Storage (UFS) Support with SMT China Vision Award

Redmond, WA, April 26, 2018 – Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO), a leading global provider of advanced data programming and security provisioning solutions for flash-memory, flash based microcontrollers, secure elements and authentication ICs, announces that it received a 2018 SMT China Vision Award in the category of Programming for its UFS device programming support for automotive applications on the LumenX™ programming platform. The award was presented to the company during an April 24, 2018 ceremony at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center during NEPCON China.

“We are excited to receive the 2018 SMT China Vision Award for UFS support on the LumenX Programming Platform,” said Doctor Ma Qinghua, General Manger, Data I/O China.  “The connected car, IoT devices and wireless applications  are driving adoption of Universal Flash Storage (UFS) in the latest product design delivering faster performance, improved responsiveness and support for extremely large file sizes up to 256 GB and beyond.  China electronics manufacturers are faced with an extraordinary challenge to manage exponential growth in content and transition to new Flash Memory technology while maintaining production throughput.  Data I/O is thrilled to extend support on LumenX for UFS devices. As customers begin to transition their applications, their investment in Data I/O’s programming technology is protected today and in the future.  LumenX delivers maximum performance, flexibility and throughput for the lowest total cost.”

UFS support is available on the LumenX Desktop or integrated into the PSV5000 and PSV7000 automated programming systems.  With more than 175 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. 

Automotive electronics programmable flash content is projected to grow from 32GB to over 1 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.

SMT China magazine launched the SMT China Vision Awards in 2007 to recognize both international and domestic providers of SMT equipment, materials, software and services that have made outstanding contributions to the rapid growth of China's electronics manufacturing industry by their inventions and innovations.
