Product description

Simple Network Application Platform

SNAP Classic is a network-ready, Java-powered plug & play reference platform. It is ideal for remote control, data processing and managing of everything from small sensors to advanced factory equipment. The JavaME-CLDC runtime environment, certified by Sun Microsystems, speeds up and simplifies your software development. The stand-alone architecture makes it perfect for quick prototyping and for production when time to market is critical.

The SNAP Classic is RoHS compliant

Simple – Easy to use! No special software required for programming SNAP Classic. Use standard Java tools

Network – Supports a wide range of interfaces and network protocols

Application – Perfect for high performance embedded applications

Platform – Complete reference system on a board

Standard form factor

The 72 pin SIMM form factor plugs into most TINI™ pin compatible socket boards.

Standard Java

SNAP Classic offers easy access to the underlying hardware through a well defined Java API.

Standard development tools

The use of standard development tools enables a quick start.

Plug & play

Shell features provides easy development over Ethernet using Telnet and FTP.

High performance

SNAP Classic offers native Java execution and efficient I/O, with DMA for maximum throughput.

Multiple interfaces
