Smart wearable technology is rapidly becoming part of everyday life. Watches, glasses, activity monitors and many other wearable items have been enriched with technology.
Constant contact with the body makes wearable devices especially suitable for sports and medical applications. Devices to measure the body's performance can help wearers get the most from their workout and monitoring the body's vital signs can help medical professionals with diagnosis and treatment. Augmenting reality with smart glasses can give the wearer a wealth of additional information such as local information, guided tours of special locations, navigation instructions, the possibilities are endless.
Semiconductor innovations place Toshiba products at the heart of wearable device technology. Toshiba's excellence in diverse disciplines such as low-power MCUs, RF integration, sensor integration, wireless connectivity, wireless charging and high density memory will enable you to deliver highly optimised must-wear innovations.
Store and play large multi-media files quickly with MCP Memory or e ·MMC™ memory. Assembled using state-of-the-art 3D chip-stacking technology, MCP memory offers a customisable combination of NAND Flash, low power DDR-RAM and a NAND controller in a single small thin package. e ·MMC™ memory also offers both NAND Flash and a NAND controller in a single package. Both memory solutions offer high capacities to meet the needs of today's multi-media devices.
From optimising your workout to looking after your heart, through contact with the body activity and health devices can monitor the parameters of the wearer. Toshiba’s ApPLite™ TZ1000 has a high performance MCU to process input from multiple sensors, an accelerometer to measure motion, 8Mbit of NOR flash memory to store information as well as RF circuitry and a Bluetooth® Low Energy controller that supports low power wireless communication. All in a single chip to reduce component count and simplify design.
Store your beautiful videos using MCP Memory or e ·MMC™ memory then share your experiences. Toshiba’s TransferJet™ IC enables ultra-high-speed point-to-point data transfer and hence allows you to share your videos wirelessly in a very short time. A life logging device may either be directly connected to the internet via Toshiba’s WIFI IC or indirectly via a Smartphone using Toshiba's Bluetooth Low Energy controller.
Sealing a device to keep out water, dirt or dust becomes a design challenge when it has to be connected for data transfer or power charging. Toshiba's chipset for wireless charging enables you to create a sealable device while removing the need for replaceable batteries or a hole in the casing for a power supply connection. Toshiba's power transmitter and receiver chipset enable fast wireless charging and support 5 Watt power transfer. Features include a rigorous Foreign Object Detection (FOD) function and an integrated digital logic controller that reduces component count and minimizes design complexity.
Large content files can be transferred to and from a sealed device securely and wirelessly with ultra-high-speed TransferJet™ technology. Other devices like laptops, tablets or headphones can communicate with the device wirelessly thanks to Toshiba's Bluetooth Low Energy controller.
