SIM862 10.1″ HMI

SIM862 is in limited production; full production is scheduled for Q3 2019.

SIM862 is an Extended Lifetime Product and recommended for new designs

The SIM862 features a big, bold 10.1″ high resolution wide-screen 1280×800 or 1024×600 color LCD powered by the Renesas RZ/G1E MPU with 1GHz Dual Cortex A7 cores. Utilizing our proprietary SHIPEngine firmware, the SIM862 delivers a large array of options for front panel applications with industrial, commercial and medical applications.

Featuring built-in RS485/UART and high-speed USB connectivity, SIMx62 family members are easily integrated into existing system designs. The 30-pin expansion connector provides further expandability to custom daughter-cards or off-the-shelf Serious Communications/Control Modules for extensive connectivity (including WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernent, RSxxx, CAN, and more) as well as powerful system control.

Explore these options compared to the SIM862:

  • SIM552 without video playback in a cost effective 7″ form factor
  • SIM562 for similar features/performance in a more cost effective 7″ form factor
