What is Data I/O's Preferred Partnership Program?
The Preferred Partnership Program (PPP) is a global program that includes Data I/O, selected semiconductor companies, and their customers. The purpose of the PPP is to address time-to-market challenges, focus on the quality of device programming, and serve mutual customers better by collaborating in sales, marketing and technical areas.
Why does Data I/O have a Preferred Partnership Program?

The Preferred Partnership Program was developed in 2005 in response to a changing marketplace. For 35 years, Data I/O has provided device programming solutions to a wide range of semiconductor companies and their customers around the world. Device support for this broad reach was manageable when there was a handful of devices and semiconductor companies in the market place.

In today’s hypercompetitive market, several hundred semiconductor device manufacturers release dozens of devices every year in different forms and with customized functions. Considering the proliferation and growing complexity of these devices, demand on device support and the complexity of the support required have grown exponentially.

In order to continue providing the highest quality support, Data I/O has changed its business strategy to prioritize device support and to offer the highest quality service to selected semiconductor companies and their customers. In its relentless pursuit of quality, Data I/O developed its Preferred Partnership Program.
