Portable point of sale (PoS) terminals are key elements in payment systems for retailers or restaurants in Smart Cities. These battery-powered terminals have small form factors and can integrate functions such as display, card reader, keypad and printer.
Terminals usually include wireless communication to a back-office server or a main stationary ePOS terminal. They can also support magnetic, smart and (more recently) contactless payment cards.
PoS terminals require compliance with the highest data security and integrity requirements and certification from Payment Card Industry and EMV organizations.
With NFC on board, the user interface couldn’t be simpler. A tap of a bank card or NFC-enabled smartphone is enough to complete the transaction – so payments are quicker and easier than ever to process.

|i.MX 7Solo Processors - Heterogeneous Processing with ARM® Cortex®-A7 and Cortex-M4 cores||
|LPC1700 Series: Scalable Mainstream Microcontrollers (MCUs) based on Arm® Cortex®-M3 Cores||
The LPC1700 series are Cortex-M3 based MCUs with solid mid-range performance and power efficiency and able to support multiple high-bandwidth data streams running simultaneously from peripherals such as Ethernet, USB (host or device), CAN, and LCD display.
Touch-sensing technology reliably replaces mechanical buttons and switches to eliminate mechanical wear and tear.
|Brushless DC (BLDC) Motor||
The brushless DC (BLDC) motor is also referred to as an electronically commutated motor. There are no brushes on the rotor and commutation is performed electronically at certain rotor positions.
|Motion Sensing Platform||
Programmable to provide freefall detection, tilt and 3-D orientation detection, tap and double tap detection, dead reckoning, shock, vibration and sudden motion detection, and power management.
|Power Management for i.MX Application Processors||
These PMICs may also integrate the battery management functions that include a switching or linear battery charger, a coulomb counter, coin cell charger and power path selection.
