At Embedded World 2014, Toshiba will be demonstrating a Digital Kiosk which combines TransferJet, NFC and Qi wireless charging technology. In this example use case rich digital content, including HD video, can be quickly purchased and downloaded to mobile devices, such as smartphones.
A fully finished concept system, the Digital Kiosk demonstrates how various emerging wireless technologies can function together to deliver new services. It is comprised of an LCD screen with platter for smartphone charging or wireless connection, and status LEDs. It's operation is very simple: the user taps a kiosk app icon on their smartphone, previews the available video content via the Kiosk screen, and, if decides to buy, presses the Purchase button and places the smartphone on the kiosk’s platter. Once the NFC authentication and payment process is finished, content will be downloaded to the phone (equipped with Toshiba uUSB TransferJet dongles) with speeds of up to 560Mpbs. Users can also wirelessly recharge the handset on the platter.
At the exhibition, Toshiba will also showcase solutions that help to accelerate application development in areas including automotive, industrial, multimedia, telecoms, smart communities, networking, home appliances and consumer devices. Aside from the Digital Kiosk, Toshiba will focus on: high-performance, low-power ARM-based MCUs; NAND-based storage technology including SD cards, USB flash drives, embedded NAND, SSDs and HDDs; automotive solutions for ADAS and instrument cluster; Bluetooth 4.0 devices; mobile peripheral devices, CMOS sensors for industrial applications, and the AppLite application processor.
