SIM352 5″ HMI

SIM352 5″ HMI

SIMx52 Technical Product Brief (TPB)

SIM352 is a future product; Contact Serious for details.

SIM352 will be an Extended Lifetime Product and recommended for new designs


The SIM352 features a premium, high resolution 5″ 800×480 color LCD powered by the Renesas RZ/A1L MPU with a 400MHz Cortex A9 core. Utilizing our proprietary SHIPEngine firmware, the SIM352 delivers a large array of options for front panel applications with industrial, commercial, and medical applications in a small package.

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 SIM352:

  • SIM152for similar capabilities in a more cost-effective, very compact 3.5″ form factor
  • SIM252for similar capabilities in a more cost-effective, compact 4.3″ form factor
  • SIM552for similar capabilities in a larger 7″ form factor
  • SIM562for higher performance, including video playback
  • SIM862for higher performance, including video playback, with a big, bold 10.1″ LCD
