"We are pleased to report a stronger quarter of revenue and order bookings, led by our new PSV7000 automated system," said Anthony Ambrose, President and CEO. "We were up sharply from Q4 2013 as bookings continued their strong upward momentum through Q1, and into April. Europe was stronger, and our customer mix was much broader compared to last year's Q1. Our backlog of $2.6 million at the end of Q1 positions us well for sequential growth. The PSV7000 has now received 4 industry awards during the last six months and was the largest contributor to the quarter's order growth, especially in Europe. We now have won PSV7000 system orders on 4 continents, indicating global appeal. We are winning deals in competitive situations in automotive, programming center, industrial and consumer markets worldwide. We won in Q1 with the PSV7000 in highly competitive situations where the customer valued Data I/O service and support, in addition to the significantly better performance of our new system."
