Data I/O’s next-gen pre-placement programmer prevents operator errors

August 2, 2011 – Marketwire — Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ:DAIO), manual and automated device programming product provider, debuted the RoadRunner3 in-line programming system, a just-prior-to-placement programming tool. Its Factory Integration Software (FIS) helps RoadRunner3 streamline production and eliminate operator errors by interfacing with the user’s manufacturing execution system (MES) or other shop-floor control software.

The programming system’s feeder mounts directly onto an SMT placement machine, removing unprogrammed Flash memory devices from tape, programming four devices in parallel, and then delivering the programmed parts to the pick-up point of the placement machine. Interface kits match major SMT equipment: SIPLACE, Fuji, Panasonic, and MYDATA. A configurable Tape-In module adjusts for tape widths from 16 to 44mm.

FIS Remote and FIS Track modules allow customers to manage and monitor the programming process. The FIS Remote software module automates job selection and job downloads to RoadRunner3. FIS Track enables data-driven decision making through automated collection and export of programming results. The modules send e-mail alerts when RoadRunner3 needs maintenance or when yields drop below a set threshold.

RoadRunner3 features a FlashCORE III Flash programming architecture for memories such as e.MMC, SD and NAND Flash.

Data I/O Corporation manufactures, distributes, and services products for programmable devices in any package, whether programmed in a socket or on a circuit board. For further information, visit
