Imsys Introduces SNAP Velox Java Controller

Imsys SNAP Velox Java Controller

Imsys introduced the Velox Java Controller. Velox is the newest member of Imsys’s Simple Network Application Platform (SNAP). Velox includes MCU, SDRAM, flash memory, 10/100 Ethernet PHY, three UARTs, SPI/I2C, RTC, eight timers, eight channel 16 bit ADC, two 16 bit DAC and a high-speed (83 MByte/s) data channel, and GPIOs. The Imsys Velox is available now with full production in the fourth quarter of this year. Estimated price in 5k quantity is around $35 depending on configuration options.

The Imsys Velox features the newest Imsys processor generation and provides full access to the processor’s features. The Velox module reduces design time, cost and risk and is suitable when long commercial product lifetime is important. It is ideal for those in need of a ready-made hardware/software platform for minimizing time-to-revenue for a networked product.

Velox includes a robust and complete software platform. This includes a Java environment for the customer’s application code. The module is made for automatic assembly as a surface-mounted component. Module dimensions are 25.4 x 31.9 x 2 mm (1″ x 1.25″ x .078″). An LGA (Land Grid Array) pattern of 156 pads, at 1.8 mm pitch, connects the module reliably to the customer’s PCB together with any other components and connectors in an ordinary reflow soldering process.
