At Embedded World 2014, Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) will be showcasing technologies from across its wide range of standard and custom semiconductor solutions. Among the featured demonstrations is a “Digital Kiosk” that combines TransferJet, NFC and Qi wireless charging technology to show an example use case in which rich digital content, including HD video, can be purchased and downloaded swiftly to mobile devices, such as smartphones.
Other sections of the stand will highlight solutions that help to accelerate application development in areas including automotive, industrial, multimedia, telecoms, smart communities, networking, home appliances and consumer devices. Toshiba’s Digital Kiosk is a fully finished concept system that shows how various emerging wireless technologies can function together to deliver new services. The single formed plastic unit comprises an LCD screen with platter for smartphone charging or wireless connection, and status LEDs.
To operate, the user taps a kiosk app icon on a smartphone, previews and then buys the available video content.
