Serious Touch Solutions

Off-the-Shelf  Intelligent Modules

Serious Communications/Control Modules (SCMs) are designed for use by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to add sophisticated IT, IoT, and industrial/factory network connectivity as well as potentially replace custom system control subsystems

Intelligent Industrial Electronics

SCMs span simple low-cost RS232/422/485 transceiver on a card, such as the SIM117, to the powerhouse SCM318 with an on-board 400MHz Arm Cortex-A9 based Renesas RZ/A1L (or Renesas RZ/A1LC) MCU and extensive wired and wireless connectivity.

All Arm-based SCMs include the full SHIPWare software load, including complete, pre-licensed, Segger embOS, emFile, emUSB, and emTCP/IP stacks and more. This complete set of enabling software and firmware enables OEMs to develop in C using the Segger Embedded Studio tools, deploying powerful custom communications bridges, applications, and even machine control algorithms.

Higher-end protocols, such as Modbus, BACnet, Dali, Ethernet/IP (and coming soon, CAN), are also available separately.


High-End Performance & Connectivity at an Amazing Price

  • Use stand-alone or docked with Gen 5 (SIMx52SIMx62) HMI Modules
  • Powerful 400MHz Cortex-A9 MPU, the Renesas RZ/A1L, with up to 3MB on-chip RAM
  • Extensive comms: WiFi, BT5, Ethernet, RS422/485, CAN/LIN-ready, and more
  • Fully licensed SHIPWare software including commercial-grade Segger OS and stacks
The SCM318 family is a series of off-the-shelf comms/control modules delivering the processing and communications scalability you need for your next generation of embedded products.  Whether you choose a low end version with just processing and basic RS485 connectivity, or higher end units with WiFi, Bluetooth 5, Ethernet, or other features to link your device to the outside world, all SCM318’s come with extensive commercial grade stacks, including OS, TCP/IP, File System, USB device and host, and more to make software development fast and robust.
