Smart Sensors and Gateways Development Board

The HANI (HMI Arrow NXP IoT) development board from Arrow Electronics is designed for IoT node applications where sophisticated user interfaces are required. With the HANI-LCD it combines support for up to 7-inch color displays, multi-protocol wireless connectivity, and a rich set of sensors for smart, connected devices that allow simple, direct user interaction including gesture control.

The board is well suited for developing gateways or smart sensors for consumer, industrial or medical use cases and focuses on color HMI (Human Machine Interface) development–supporting multiple display sizes and connectivity. On-board sensors not only provide context awareness, but also include bio-compatible precision pressure sensor suitable for medical devices like CPAP equipment,spirometers, inhalers or oxygen concentrators.



The HANI board is based on NXP’s LPC54618 high performance MCU running at 180 MHz with 512K Flash and 200K RAM. It has an
integrated HANI LCD controller providing user interfaces on TFT-LCD graphics panels ranging from small 3.5-inch QVGA (240 x 320)
up to 7-inch displays with 800 x 400 pixels.


Wireless Interfaces
