SIM552 7″ HMI

SIM552 is in full production.

SIM552 is an Extended Lifetime Product and recommended for new designs

The SIM552 features a big 7″ 800×480 color LCD powered by the Renesas RZ/A1L MPU with a 400MHz Cortex A9 core. Utilizing our proprietary SHIPEngine firmware, the SIM552 delivers a large array of options for front panel applications with industrial and commercial applications.

Featuring built-in RS485/UART and high-speed USB connectivity, SIMx52 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 SIM552:

  • SIM152 for similar capabilities in a cost effective, very compact 3.5″ form factor
  • SIM252 for similar capabilities in a cost effective, compact 4.3″ form factor
  • SIM352 for a larger, high resolution 5″ experience
  • SIM562 for higher performance, including video playback
  • SIM862 for higher performance, including video playback, with a big, bold 10.1″ LCD
