Toshiba Unveils TZ5000 App Lite™ Starter Kit For Web Application Development

20 AUGUST 2014

Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has announced two starter kits that will speed the development of web applications using the Toshiba TZ5000 Application

Processor Lite (ApP Lite™) series. By providing various drivers for rich Internet applications using HTML5, the RBTZ5000-2MA-A1 and RBTZ5000-6MA-A1 starter kits enable users to easily introduce embedded development environments – and thus speed time to market – for IoT (Internet of Things), streaming media and other content-rich consumer devices.
Both kits feature processors with a dual-core ARM® Cortex®-A9 MPCore /ARM® NEON™ CPU with Bluetooth® 4.0 connectivity and an embedded IEEE802.11a/b/g/n/ac 2×2 MIMO baseband engine for WiFi® connectivity. Both provide drivers for video playback using Wireless LAN and HDMI® output, with the RBTZ5000-2MA-A1 on Ubuntu® Linux®, and the RBTZ5000-6MA-A1 on an Android™ 4.4 platform.
The RBTZ5000-2MA-A1includes a general-use board with expanded I/O for various peripherals, such as cameras or microphones. The RBTZ5000-6MA-A1, developed for transmission of audio, video and other media for streaming delivery, features a stick-type board suitable for streaming media devices. In addition, by incorporating various optional units, the kit enables improved development efficiency for a broad range of devices targeting the fast-growing IoT market.
Introduced in February 2014, the Toshiba TZ5000 series are application processors integrated with NAND flash memory and are baseband engine compliant with the next-generation high-speed wireless LAN standard IEEE 802.11ac. The product line combines high-speed wireless LAN features capable of delivering high-quality movie experiences with NAND flash memory in a single package to enable user programs and large-volume data to be kept in temporary storage. The reduced number of parts and decreased footprint make it suitable for small-form-factor designs.
The TZ5000 ApP Lite starter kit samples will begin shipping in October 2014.
