SECO Modular Vision HMI displays support Arm and x86 SMARC 2.1 modules

SECO has unveiled a new HMI family of smart displays called the “Modular Vision” with NXP i.MX 93 (Arm), NXP i.MX 8M (Arm), or Intel Elkhart Lake (x86) powered SMARC 2.1-compliant system-on-modules and a display size ranging from 7-inch up to 15.6-inch.

The goal is to offer a flexible platform to customers who can select various display sizes (7-inch, 10.1-inch, or 15.6-inch currently) and a SMARC module that closely matches the product’s requirements for example for a standalone panel PC.

Both the Arm and x86 models run Edgehog OS (Yocto) and target applications such as coffee and vending machines, medical equipment, industrial automation, smart buildings, smart cities, and digital signage.

While the carrier board seems identical for all display sizes, the company matches the processor type (i.MX 93, i.MX 8M Plus, or Intel Elkhart Lake) to a specific size, probably for marketing purposes to simplify the offering. More configurations and display sizes will be offered in the future.

The company will formally introduce the Modular Vision family at SPS 2023 (Smart Production Solutions) taking place on November 14 to 16, 2023, in Nuremberg, Germany, but you’ll already find more details on the HMI products page and the press release.
