7-inch Raspberry Pi CM4-based industrial HMI offers gigabit Ethernet, RS485 Modbus, digital and analog inputs

NORVI RPI-HMI Industrial Controller

NORVI RPI-HMI is an industrial controller with a 7-inch touchscreen screen display powered by a Raspberry Pi CM4 and equipped with a range of interfaces including a gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port, a few USB ports, and several terminal blocks for RS485 (Modbus), digital and analog input, transistor outputs, and 24V DC power input. The new Raspberry Pi CM4-based HMI announcement follows the NORVI ESP32-HMI controller that was launched last December with an ESP32-S3 wireless microcontroller and a 5-inch LCD display with resistive touch. The NORVI RPI-HMI builds on that with a much faster Arm processor, a larger display with a capacitive touchscreen, gigabit Ethernet, and a wider range of I/Os that makes it suitable for various industrial HMI and PLC applications. NORVI RPI-HMI Industrial Controller specifications: SoM – Raspberry Pi CM4 SoC – Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core Cortex-A72 processor with VideoCore GPU System Memory – 1GB, 2GB, 4GB or 8GB LPDDR4-3200 […]

600 MHz STM32H7R/S Cortex-M7 MCUs feature 620KB SRAM, 64KB boot flash, optional NeoChrom GPU


STMicro has launched the high-performance 600 MHz STM32H7R/S Arm Cortex-M7 microcontrollers: the STM32H7R3/S3 General-purpose MCU lines, and STM32H7R7/S7 graphics MCU lines adding a NeoChrom 2.5D GPU. Both ship with a large 620KB SRAM and a small 64KB boot flash. The reason for the small boot flash is to have the application code and data stored off-chip memory ICs to provide more flexibility to customers when it comes to the choice of memory type and capacity to fulfill the application requirements and lower the BoM cost. The “S” in the STM32H7S microcontrollers stands for Security with a crypto/hash engine that can help the final product achieve SESIP Level 3 and/or PSA Certified Level 3 certifications. Many of the specifications are similar to the STM32H7 microcontrollers, but performance is better going slightly faster than the 550MHz STM32H7 MCUs added in 2020, and the STM32H7R/S adds some new features: 200 MHz Hexadeca SPI […]
