Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. has unleashed the RBTZ5000-2MA-A1 and RBTZ5000-6MA-A1 starter kits for 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 fully integrated kits allow users to introduce embedded development environments and speed time to market for Internet of Things (IoT), 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 2x2 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 range of devices targeting the IoT market.

TZ5000 ApP Lite series

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, in one package, a high-speed wireless LAN feature capable of delivering a high-quality movie experience and NAND flash memory, which keeps user programs and large-volume data in temporary storage. The reduced number of parts and decreased footprint make it suitable for small-form-factor designs, noted the company.

The TZ5000 ApP Lite starter kit samples will begin shipping in October 2014.
