Imsys Technologies recently released a RoHS-compliant product line based on its TINI-compatible simple network application platform (SNAP) module. The product is used in medical devices, industrial terminals, security systems and many other networked applications where connectivity, physical size and Java performance is important.

According to the company, its SNAP module has brought connectivity and Java together for embedded applications. The combination of hardware and software makes an efficient platform for program development and execution, especially for Java, the company said.

With Ethernet, TCP/IP stack and a multitude of other serial channels, the platform offers protocol conversion and compatibility with the industry standard TINI. A Sun Microsystems-certified Java ME-CLDC implementation runs in the Imsys IM1000 processor on the module. Programs can be developed in freely available tools like Sun JDK and the open source framework Eclipse, and sent to the module for execution. For programmers in need of using other languages, the Imsys Developer PC host software offers a fully integrated design environment for handling a mix of Java, C and ASM32 programming and debugging.

"This small but powerful platform enables designers of embedded systems to get Java applications on-line and be productive from the start," said Imsys CEO Ola Andersson. "With the new series of modules and strategy of the company, we can now offer customized versions for different requirements. The open reference design provides easy integration of customized functionality into cost- and performance-optimized systems."

The modules come with memory sizes from 2Mbytes to 8Mbytes. The RoHS-compliant SNAP will be available next moth with pricing to start at $128 for the 4Mbyte version (100 units).
