The remnant of the supernova of 1006 AD, the remnant first showing evidence for the presence of X-ray synchrotron emission from shock-accelerated electrons, was observed for ~900 ksec with INTEGRAL to study electron acceleration to very high energies. In IBIS and JEM-X spectral bands, both synchrotron emission and bremsstrahlung are expected. The aim of the observations is to distinguish the morphology of synchrotron and bremsstrahlung regions using the combination of IBIS and JEM-X spatial and spectral coverage. Here, we report on our preliminary results from the analysis of the INTEGRAL data.
