Smart Embedded® - Part 1:
The fast track to HMI
Touch controls à la smartphone are replacing mechanical buttons and knobs in many industrial areas.
Such HMIs can be developed quickly with intelligent displays.
With our Smart Embedded® product family, we are introducing a whole new generation of display - equipped with ARM® Cortex®-M7.
Thanks to the integrated microcontroller, these displays offer a range of interfaces: I²C, SPI, CAN, RS485, RS232, GPIO (6 Pin), USB OTG and PoE.
COM-HPC form factor:
The new standard for highest performance up to 300 watts
Real-time data synchronisation - data transfers for machines and production lines.
This performance and new expansion possibilities for edge computing are made possible by the new COM-HPC form factor. HPC stands for "High Performance Computing".
The COM-HPC modules expand the existing portfolio of COM-Express modules. They now enable high-end client and server applications based on Computer-on-Modules. The performance increases to up to 300 watts.
i.MX8M KI-Quadcore Power on 29 x 29 mm:
Ka-Ro QSX computer-on-modules for soldering on
More memory, more performance, more intelligence!
The new CoM solder modules of the QSX series from Ka-Ro offer you 3 times "more".
These are equipped with the i.MX8M Mini or with the brand new i.MX8M Plus processor from NXP.
Up to 8 GByte eMMC in the smallest of spaces
As usual with Ka-Ro, these solder modules are also compatible with the existing 27 x 27 mm modules. LPDDR4 RAM is used in the new modules. This means that 2 GBytes of RAM and up to 8 GBytes of eMMC are currently available in the smallest possible space.
TMR sensor IC as reed switch replacement:
ABLIC S-5701 B-series requires only 160 nA current
Robust replacement for reed switches:
This is what ABLIC Inc. offers with its surface-mountable TMR sensor IC (Tunnel Magneto Resistance) S-5701 B-series. This magnetic sensor IC offers a very low operating current of only 160 nA combined with high magnetic sensitivity and a long service life.
We have compared the limitations of the reed switch with the advantages of the TMR sensor IC.
GLYN-Talk - Topic of the month:
Faster to the HMI development goal with SMART Embedded Display
Your fast track to a "smart" display solution
Smart Embedded: What is that and what advantages does a smart display offer you?
Here, the intelligence is already built into the display!
Smart Embedded products are displays with a Cortex®-M7 (ST32 series) and various interfaces. In addition, you receive software with which you can conjure up a modern GUI on the display within a few hours. You can find out more about the fast track to your goal with this GLYN-Talk.
