Data I/O Upgrades LumenX™ Programming Platform to Double Download Speed and Support Next-Generation Microcontrollers

  LumenX version 1.6 Increases Performance and Expands Device Support Capabilities

Redmond, WA, November 13, 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 version 1.6 of the LumenX™ programming platform. With this upgrade, LumenX delivers even better download performance, provides more flexibility and establishes foundational support for the latest generation of microcontroller (MCU) architectures.

“LumenX is already the highest performance programming platform in the industry” said Anthony Ambrose, President and CEO of Data I/O Corporation.  “However, we are acutely aware that next generation microcontroller and flash memory architectures will continue to move towards larger image sizes and faster programming requirements.  The programming demands for new microcontroller families will require a combination of data programming performance and secure provisioning that only Data I/O can deliver.”

“Increased edge processing, along with security, is driving the need for more on-chip storage,”  said Jack Ogawa, Senior Director of Marketing, Cypress IoT Compute and Wireless Business Unit.  “Cypress’ new PSoC 6 MCU with 2 megabytes of Flash and 1 megabyte of SRAM addresses this need.  In conjunction, we chose to work with Data I/O and their partner Secure Thingz to enable a high-performance volume programming and provisioning solution that is fast and  equally accessible to all customers.”

In addition to a wide variety of flash memory interfaces such as Embedded Multi-Media Controller (eMMC) and Universal Flash Storage (UFS), LumenX version 1.6 also supports popular microcontroller interfaces such as Serial Wire Debug (SWD) and Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART).   Automotive and industrial markets are experiencing a rapid increase in image size as more and more features are integrated into a single microcontroller device.  LumenX version 1.6 doubles the speed at which an image can be downloaded to the programmer from 25 MB/s to 50 MB/s, decreasing downtime and improving efficiency.  In addition, new microcontroller families such as the PSoC 6 can now be provisioned with security credentials.  LumenX version 1.6 combines support for data programming and secure provisioning into one programming platform.

LumenX version 1.6 also supports Dynamic Data Injection, which, in addition to standard programming, allows a customer to inject a large amount of unique data into each and every programmed device.  This capability is especially useful in applications where serialization requirements exceed a simple serial number.  Existing LumenX programming systems can be easily upgraded to version 1.6 and is available free of charge to Data I/O customers with current support contracts.
