Product description

Development Kit for Velox


  • Platform development kit with hardware, software, cables
  • Imsys Velox module with Java profile
  • Main board with access to all ten 8-pin GPIO ports, three serial channels and Ethernet
  • Imsys Developer including Java and C compiler and debugging tools
  • Trace adapter for PC host communication.


The Velox Development Kit is a complete kit for the development environment of Imsys’ new family of microcontrollers. The new microcontroller platform has an innovative architecture specialized in communication and efficiency. Leveraging its reconfigurability, hardware-like performance can be achieved through low level acceleration of firmware. The design environment enables the programmer to manage projects with configurations for different applications. The Development Kit supports development of energy efficient embedded applications, especially if Java is part of the design.

The Velox Development Kit contains all necessary hardware and software to develop applications for this architecture including a fully featured CLDC Java profile.

VDK is not just a development kit to demonstrate or prototype the use of the IM3000-series microcontroller, or to function as a reference design for customer designs, it is designed to be used as a product, it makes available most of the interfaces that the microcontroller has hardware or software support for.
