Data I/O Corporation to Display PS588 With Second Generation 3D Coplanarity 
Vision System at IPC APEX Expo 
Achieve the Highest Quality Standards, Production Yield and Process
Efficiency for Programming Mission Critical Devices at a Reduced Cost 
REDMOND, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 --  Data I/O Corporation
(NASDAQ: DAIO), the leading provider of manual and automated device
programming solutions for electronics manufacturers, will display the
PS588 with a second generation 3D coplanarity vision system at IPC
APEX Expo February 19th - 21st, 2013 at the San Diego Convention
Center in California. 
Trusted to meet the highest quality standards from the most demanding
customers in automotive, military, aerospace and healthcare, Data
I/O's second generation 3D coplanarity vision system ensures these
standards are met with enhanced performance and ease of use at a 30%
reduction in cost. 
Routine handling of semiconductor devices can result in bent leads
and coplanarity problems causing soldering joints to fail during
manufacturing. As device lithography continues to become smaller and
smaller, the level of precision needed to measure the leads and
ensure they are within tolerance becomes that much greater. After a
device is properly programmed the 3D vision system measures the leads
of each device to ensure they are within specified tolerances before
placed in output media.  
Automotive manufacturers achieve the highest production yield and
process efficiency for programming mission critical devices by
integrating 3D coplanarity vision system with the PS588 high speed
automated handler. This drives down the risk of product failures
caused by manufacturing and handling defects. 
"Our highest priority is to ensure all components and products work
reliably in the field. To accomplish this, it is essential only
devices programmed with the correct software and free from
manufacturing defects are placed onto the circuit boards," states
Thomas Koepp, Test Engineer, Johnson Controls. "3D Coplanarity vision
inspection measures the x, y and z axes of the leads on a device to
proof them against set acceptance specifications and criteria.
Integrating 3D vision inspection with the programming process
provides the highest production yield and process stability." 
"We see 
an increase in Flash memory and microcontroller devices for
the automotive, medical, and military/aerospace industries where the
cost of product failure is high," states Anthony Ambrose, President
and CEO of Data I/O Corporation. "Enhanced 3D Coplanarity is the
latest in a series of innovations from Data I/O to enhance production
quality, yield and reliability. We are proud that leading global
companies trust our solutions to ensure for the exceptionally high
quality standards required during the manufacturing process of
mission critical products." 
In addition to integrating 3D coplanarity, Data I/O offers a
comprehensive suite of software applications designed to meet the
most demanding quality requirements including version control,
Factory Integration Software, enhanced statistical process control,
advanced serialization and more.
