Web app dev kit supports Android and Ubuntu
Toshiba Electronics has introduced two starter kits for early development of web applications using the Toshiba TZ5000 Application Processor Lite (ApP Lite) series.
The RBTZ5000-2MA-A1 and RBTZ5000-6MA-A1 starter kits provide drivers for internet applications using HTML5.
Both kits 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.
They are based on 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 Wi-Fi connectivity.
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.
The TZ5000 ApP Lite starter kit samples will begin shipping in October 2014.Tags: ARM, Cortex, dev kit, microprocessors, Toshiba
