Toshiba Corp. has introduced the TZ5000 series of application processors supporting wireless communication of high quality video. The latest addition to the company's ApP Lite portfolio will have sample shipments around May, with mass production scheduled to start in September this year.

Increasingly, delivery of video and audio over the internet requires set top boxes and similar equipment to receive the service and distribute contents to PCs and smartphones via wireless LAN. The TZ5000 series application processors integrate a baseband function compliant with IEEE802.11ac, the standard for high speed wireless LAN, and also incorporate 32Gbi NAND flash memory in a single package. This secures a broad bandwidth connection, which is often limited when each component is individually mounted on a PCB, and also reduces mounting area, contributing to downsizing of equipment.

The series also adopts an original low power design, reducing power consumption and heat generation when processing multimedia applications, such as HTML5, which usually imposes a heavy load to the CPU.

The bandwidth of connections between devices is often limited when they are connected through PCI Express or SDIO interfaces. The TZ5000 series achieves broadband connection by incorporating an IEEE802.11ac baseband engine, CPU and memory into a single package. A 32Gb NAND flash memory and a dedicated memory controller are incorporated into the package, securing fast boot of software, such as the operating system, and high speed data access. It is secure against falsification of data or hacking attacks because the program area is built into the package, detailed Toshiba.

The TZ5000 series is geared for OTT tuners, IP media box, wearable devices, digital signage equipment and thin client devices.
