Application processor development kits target wearable and IoT devices

Hardware development kits and software development kits form a development platform for the TZ1000 ApP Lite series. Toshiba Electronics Europe says they are suitable for wearable and IoT devices.

The TZ1000 series devices integrate a sensor, a processor, flash memory, and a Bluetooth Low Energy controller in a single package. The series is designed to provide single-device solutions for measuring, processing, saving and communicating data.

The development environment includes a hardware development kits embedded with the TZ1001MBG processor and a biometric sensor board that measures pulse waves and the heart’s electrical activities. The software development kit includes driver software that controls each component incorporated in TZ1001MBG, middleware that measures activity and pulse waves, and application software that controls the overall system.

The platform is supported by recommended development tools, including Keil MDK-ARM and IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM.

The company has announced it will strengthen the TZ1000 series with software algorithms to measure weak biological signals, like pulse waves and the heart’s electrical activities, as well as environmental data such as temperature and humidity.
