Data I/0 Improves PS Series Automated Programmers with Upgrades

8/14/2003 - Data I/O® Corporation, the leading provider of advanced programming systems, announced the release of TaskLink v5.0 and AH400 v5.0 upgrades for its PS Series automated programmers. The PS Series includes the PS300FC, PS300, PS200 and PP100 automated programming systems.

The TaskLink v5.0 upgrade, now also available for WindowsXP, extends the capabilities of Data I/O’s Connected Programming Strategy by further integrating the programming operation throughout engineering, NPI and manufacturing processes. New device technologies supported by TaskLink v5.0 on FlashCORE include added feature support for programmable NAND Flash and microcontroller devices.

The AH400 v5.0 incorporates new features such as machine and tape-out speed increases, serialization, SPC reporting, and machine utilization improvements that lower the cost of ownership.

The TaskLink v5.0 and AH400 v5.0 upgrades will ship as standard features for all new PS Series automated programmers beginning August 1, 2003. Current PS Series customers may easily upgrade previous versions of TaskLink and AH400.

Data I/O’s Connected Programming Strategy
The company’s connected programming strategy rests on the ability to easily communicate and seamlessly transfer algorithms, data files, and programming profiles up and down the supply chain. Data I/O’s vision is lean manufacturing based on just-in-time programming, minimized inventory, and flexible manufacturing. FlashCORE is the high-speed programming architecture underlying Data I/O’s automated inline programming system ProLINE-RoadRunner, the high-speed offline-handler PS300 FlashCORE, and FlashPAK desktop programming systems.

TaskLink for Windows
TaskLink’s easy-to-use Windows environment is critical to the process of transitioning between new and updated product designs so that programming task files for new product designs can be seamlessly transferred from engineering to manufacturing. The file management capabilities of TaskLink, leveraged with network communications, eliminate the extra time and costs associated with manual release processes.

PS300 FlashCORE: Automated programming system for high volume programming
The PS300FC automated programming system accommodates up to twelve programmers (up to 48 programming sites), surpassing any throughput currently available. Combining the FlashCORE programming architecture with a high-speed handling capability, the PS300FC delivers the lowest programming cost per part in offline programming operations. This is accomplished by a combination of exceptional programming speed, reliable handler platform, system scalability, and software-based process control.
