SIMx52 HMI Module Families

SIMx52 HMI Module Families

Cost-Effective Flexibility for your Embedded HMI Project

  • Powered by the Renesas RZ/A1L MPU with a 400MHz Cortex-A9 core for cost-effective and modern UX performance
  • No-cost built-in SHIPEngine firmware — no drivers or embedded coding required
  • No-cost SHIPTide GUI development tools ensure rapid time to a moddern, production-ready GUI with absolute minimal coding

The Core of your Next Embedded System Innovation

Ranging from small 3.5″ to bold and modern 7″, the SIMx52 HMI module families have many LCD options to meet your embedded HMI needs, including sunlight readable, extended temperature range, cap/resistive/no-touch, and more.Check out this short video teardown introduction of the SIMx52:

Aside from LCD size and capability options, the SIMx52 family has several different feature options (“variants”) you can choose from based on your feature and cost needs:

Processor and Memory

  • Renesas RZ/A1L 400MHz ARM Cortex A9 MCU
  • 32MB SDRAM with 128MB QSPI NAND Flash storage for program, non-volatile data, and files system storage
  • μSDCard socket for (user supplied) memory cards for file system expansion and firmware/GUI updates

Integrated graphics/touch and audio I/O:

  • Integrated LCD with optional touch controller and ambient light sensor for high brightness LCD options
  • Integrated audio 3W speaker codec/amplifier outputs and external codec/amplifier support

Numerous communications ports

  • USB 2.0 high speed 480mbps host port A connector
  • USB 2.0 high speed 480mbps device port Micro B connector
  • RS422/485 port with selectable duplex and termination
  • 3.3V UART with transmit control (separate from RS485 port)

Simple in-chassis connectivity

  • Direct Dock to Generation 5 Serious Comms/Control Modules (SCMs, e.g. SCM318)
  • 16-pin JST ZPD series wire-to-board connector (RS485/UART, Power, RESET#)
  • 6-pin industrial 3.5mm pluggable connector (RS485, Power)
  • 3-pin speaker connector

Wide Operating Range

  • 10.8-35VDC wide range power supply input
  • -40 to +85C operating temperature range components (further limited by LCD option)
