FlashCORE III Technology

Programming Systems with FlashCORE III

Keep your production processes running at maxium velocity for devices and files of any size using FlashCORE III programming architecture—the latest version of the world's most trusted Flash programmer.  With optimized algorithms, FlashCORE III is used to program 100's of millions of devices and is trusted to keep tier one automotive electronics, wireless, consumer electonics, and industrial controls manufacturers running at peak production throughput.  FlashCORE III is expertly integrated into all of Data I/O's current manual and automated programming systems.

Key Benefits

FlashCORE III offers significant performance gains by increasing download and read/write speeds by a factor of ten (over FlashCORE II). With support for the latest high density Flash memory devices, FlashCORE III is the best programming engine on the market supporting large devices. It's compatible with all existing FlashCORE algorithms and adapters and has the largest library of NAND support and Bad Block Schemes available anywhere. FlashCORE III gives you a quality programming solution.

Maximized Production Rates

  • Read/write speeds greater than 10 MBytes per second (80 Mbits/s) for capable devices
  • Fast dowloads over 100 Base-T Ethernet connection
  • Configurable FPGA for optimized programming now and in the future
