Toshiba's Latest IoT Processors Pack 802.11ac

Toshiba America Electronic Components introduced three new processors based on the ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core CPU and designed for Internet of Things (IoT).

The latest additions to its TZ5000 series of ApP Lite processors use Toshiba proprietary hardware-based technologies for power management and system integration, delivering the low power consumption necessary for IoT applications. Two of the new application processors incorporate a built-in baseband for high-speed Wi-Fi 802.11ac, graphics and video engine. The new processors extend CPU performance, memory performance and temperature range compared to earlier products in the TZ5000 line, making them suitable for IoT products that require greater data capacity, and enabling them to be used in a broader range of applications.

"As end-product developers' needs evolve, we are continuing to grow our ApP Lite processor family with new devices designed to accommodate these requirements," said Deepak Prakash, senior director of marketing, Logic LSI Business Unit, System LSI Group at TAEC. "These newest processors, which deliver high memory efficiency and robust security features, enable development of highly reliable and stable applications with an enhanced user experience compared to earlier devices in the series."
