Embedded electronics specialist EDATEC has launched what it claims is the primary commercially-available human-machine interface (HMI) gadget constructed across the new Raspberry Pi 5 single-board laptop (SBC): the ED-HMI3010, obtainable in 7″ and 10.1″ variants.
The ED-HMI3010 household is designed to show the Raspberry Pi 5 right into a high-performance all-in-one touchscreen system for human-machine interactions. The one-board laptop itself is mounted on the rear of an aluminum chassis, offering entry to the gadget’s 4 USB ports, gigabit Ethernet port, twin 4k60 micro-HDMI ports, and USB Sort-C energy connector. The chassis is designed to do extra than simply look good, too: EDATEC says it serves as a fanless cooling system, serving to to tame a system-on-chip which is significantly sooner however extra power-hungry than its predecessors.

At launch, the ED-HMI3010 is out there in a ten.1″ variant with a 1280×800 decision full-color TFT show boasting 10-point capacitive contact and a 350cd/m² brightness. This will likely be joined, the corporate has confirmed, with a extra compact 7″ variant with a 1024×600 decision and a decrease 300cd/m² brightness. An optionally available eight-megapixel front-facing digital camera can also be obtainable, the corporate has confirmed, for video conferencing or laptop imaginative and prescient purposes.
This is not EDATEC’s first shot at a passively-cooled housing for the Raspberry Pi 5. Earlier this month the corporate unveiled a pair of steel instances, the ED-Pi5Case and ED-Pi5Case-O — the previous utilizing an fully-enclosed design, very similar to the ED-HMI3010, and the latter utilizing an open-frame design which sandwiches the single-board laptop between two aluminum plats. In each variants, the chassis itself is designed to behave as a heatsink to maintain the processor operating cool — precisely as with the brand new HMI system.
Extra data on the ED-HMI3010 is out there on the EDATEC web site; the ED-HMI3010-101C-0832 variant, which makes use of the ten.1″ display screen and features a Raspberry Pi 5 with 8GB of RAM and a 32GB microSD card however no front-facing digital camera, has been put up on the market on the corporate’s AliExpress retailer at $258 plus transport.
