The remnant of the supernova of 1006AD, the remnant first showing evidence for the presence of X-ray synchrotron emission from shock-accelerated electrons, was observed for ~1000 ksec with INTEGRAL for the study of 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. With JEM-X we resolved the bright synchrotron limbs below 8 keV. Here we report on JEM-X and ISGRI imaging results, as well as preliminary results on the flux measurements from the 511 keV positron annihilation line, and other nuclear lines of interest from SN1006.
