The SNAP Velox from Swedish manufacturer IMSYS (www.imsystech.com) is a microcontroller module with extensive capabilities for use in the field of IoT and M2M. The module contains a very fast microprogrammed JAVA interpreter. Programming in C and assembler is also possible. In addition to extensive I/O Interfaces, the Velox has 8MB Flash and 32MB SDRAM and 10/100Base-T Ethernet MAC and PHY.
SNAP Velox Gateway Board
The Gateway Board is a motherboard with a Veloxmodul already mounted and the interfaces suitably terminated to corresponding connectors.
SNAP Velox Development Kit
The SNAP Velox development kit consists of the Gateway Board plus a USBTrace- Adapter plus the appropriate software IDE. This is a complete Windows-based environment for the development of user application software, with debug support for Java, C, and Assembler.
The Imsys SNAP Classic module is an early JAVA-enabled microcontroller intended for embedded systems with internet connectivity. It is still available and in use.
It is a plug & play reference platform that is compatible with the MAXIM TINI 72pin format. The J2ME-CLDC JAVA Runtime Environment has been certified by Sun Microsystems.
SNAP-Modules are ideally suited for remote monitoring and control of a wide variety of equipment ranging from simple sensors to complex industrial installations. The heart of the SNAP-Module is the Imsys CJIP CPU. This can interpret native JAVA byte code directly, without a VM; this is why the SNAP can achieve a processing speed 20 times faster than competitive products.
TecSys delivers the SNAP-Module, plus the associated software and a selection of Motherboards and Development-Kits.
MB-TILT-400Pro Motherboard for SNAP CLASSIC
The MB-TILT-400Pro is a moderately priced, OEM socket board. It enables the use of SNAP Classic with a wide-range of interfaces: 10/100 BaseT Ethernet, serial x 2, CAN and 1-Wire, and one JSimm expansion slot. It is physically small - 100x100mm - and fits into standard European enclosures.
MB-STEP Motherboard for SNAP CLASSIC
The MB-STEP is a SNAP Classic motherboard in a 100x160 mm Euroboard standard size. It is equipped with connectors for 10/100 BaseT Ethernet, RS232 serial x 2, CAN, 1-Wire and analog input. MB-STEP also offers enhanced possibilities with a prototype area and an additional expansion SIMM socket.
The SNAP-IDE is an Integrated Development Environment for the SNAP. The included tools are: source code editor, on-line manuals and help system, C-compiler, assembler, linker, loader and trace/debug tools.
