Data I/O Corporation Emphasizes the Importance of Cell Margin Verification to Its Customers for Mission-Critical Automotive, Med

REDMOND, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 11/13/07 -- Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO), the leader of semiconductor device programming solutions, has made an announcement to its customers today to emphasize the importance of cell margin verification for mission-critical applications.

Cell margin verification is a method designed into certain families of flash-based microcontroller devices from NEC, Freescale, Infineon and Texas Instruments. These devices are typically used for mission-critical applications in the automotive, medical equipment, industrial and aerospace industries. Cell margin verification ensures that devices are programmed as specified and data-retention is ensured by the manufacturer.

Cell margin verification is performed on Data I/O's programming platforms to ensure data retention. After every device is programmed and cell margin is verified, the result of the verification is logged into a log file on Data I/O's automated programming systems. Customers can access the log file to analyze the root cause of device failures.

"Even though flash-based memory technologies are quite reliable, quality of programming can still make a difference in data retention of a device due to hardware and environmental conditions," said Harald Weigelt, Vice President of Worldwide Sales. "A marginally programmed semiconductor device can cause data loss or change data, unexpectedly causing a system failure. This exposes our customers to unnecessary costs, risks and liabilities via system failures and recalls. A large recall can cost a customer in millions of dollars, impacting profitability adversely. To reduce this risk, Data I/O implements cell margin verification on microcontrollers that support this feature," said Mr. Weigelt.

For memory and microcontroller devices that don't support cell margin verification feature, Data I/O's programming platforms provide the necessary tools to verify each device after programming it.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
