Item 7.01:  Regulation FD Disclosure



Today, Mr. Ambrose, President & CEO of Data I/O, met with Open Systems Media at ARM Tech Con, to discuss the SentriX strategy and rollout. In a wide ranging interview, Ambrose disclosed that the Company placed another SentriX system in Q3 to a partner in the USA.  He also disclosed that the Company had a sharp increase in bookings during the month of September and the first weeks of October. Finally, he commented on the Company’s strong cash position at the end of the third quarter, which we believe provides the ability to internally finance the SentriX ramp.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
