Kitchener, Canada - 03 June 23. IO Anywhere Inc. (http://www.io-anywhere.ca) announces the release of its first generation product.

IO Anywhere (tm) devices provide affordable internet/intranet connectivity to a vast array of both legacy devices and leading edge stand alone equipment. Utilizing the latest in CPLD technology and integrating Ethernet enabled microprocessor core modules produces a completely configurable platform for a broad range of applications.

IO Anywhere Inc. was formed in 2000 with a mission to build a flexible appliance for hosting custom embedded applications.

Many applications call for the acquisition of a few points of data,
control of a couple of devices, and display user information. The use of PC based platforms which run hot, consume more power and are typically configuration intensive is often a poor option.

IO Anywhere started with a mission to develop an appliance that cost less than $200, had to have lots of onboard I/O, multiple serial ports, was browser configurable, ultra low power, Ethernet enabled and could be easily adapted to virtually any data capture and control application.

The result is IO Anywhere (tm).
