Imsys Introduces IM3910 Java Reconfigurable System on Chip

The IM3910 is the newest member of Imsys’ IM3000 platform family of Reconfigurable System on Chip – RSoC® products. Its high energy-efficiency and ability to deliver a sustained throughput of 83 MB/s makes it an ideal choice for I/O-demanding cost and power sensitive devices. The combination with Java makes it useful for applications such as automation networking, battery powered devices, Internet connected equipment, and Java enabled remote control, point of purchase systems and facility management.

DK3-3910 development kit and moduleThe Java Virtual Machine is an integral part of the MCU, which reduces the JVM interpretation overhead leading to lower power consumption and longer battery life. The IM3910 sets new standards for energy efficiency due to its compact code, efficient control logic, and patented memory interface. Using Java the developer gets done faster doesn’t need to learn anything Imsys specific and hidden by the Java API. API support includes efficient networking and the designer can mix and match between Java, C and assembler.

IM3910 combines the best features of traditional CISC architectures and energy efficient use of resources with “FPGA-like” flexibility. IM3910 MCU supports dual 10/100 Ethernet ports, three UARTs with 920 kbit/s, I2C or high speed, up to 20 Mb/s, SPI port, and has eight DMA channels with a sustained 83 MB/s throughput.

“The introduction of the IM3910 represents yet another milestone for Imsys and offer better performance, more features and lower system cost and power consumption than its predecessor”, says Ola Andersson, Imsys President and CEO.

Imsys’ complete offering includes RTOS, TCP/IP-stack, fail-safe flash file system, and embedded web-server. With Imsys’ full-fledged development system, the customer can concentrate on the application without worrying about software integration problems.

The drop-in module offers the customer low risk development and short time to market and is ideal for customers that want a speed and feature upgrade from TINI® or SNAP(TM).
