MediaTek has introduced its new Genio platform for AIoT devices and introduced the first chip in the Genio family, the Genio 1200 designed for premium AIoT products.
MediaTek Genio is a complete platform stack for the AIoT with powerful and ultra-efficient chipsets, open platform software development kits (SDKs) and a developer portal with comprehensive resources and tools.
“Today MediaTek powers the most popular AIoT devices on the market. As the industry enters the next era of innovation, MediaTek’s Genio platform delivers flexibility, scalability and development support brands need to cater to the latest market demands,” said Jerry Yu, MediaTek Corporate Senior Vice President and General Manager of MediaTek’s Computing, Connectivity and Metaverse Business Group. “We look forward to seeing the new user experiences brands bring to life with our Genio 1200 chip and its powerful AI capability, support for 4K displays and advanced imaging features.”
By offering an integrated, easy-to-use platform, MediaTek Genio reduces development costs and speeds up time to market, while providing long-term support for operating system updates and security patches that extend the product lifecycle.
The Genio open platform AIoT SDKs allow designers to customize multiple products with the same software pack, which supports Android, Linux, Yocto and Ubuntu operating systems. By streamlining the writing and coding of each software application layer, customers can develop their products with minimal support – regardless of the type of application.
MediaTek’s Genio developer portal gives customers access to a wide range of developer tools, along with access to partners’ system hardware and software. Furthermore, brands can use the portal to take advantage of partners’ networks and sales channels. This range of development tools and partner support makes it easy for brands of all sizes to streamline the design of AIoT products and speed up time-to-market.
The MediaTek Genio chipsets offer fast multicore performance with extreme power-efficiency, optimizing the user experience for even the most compute-intensive AI applications.
The new Genio 1200 combines best-in-class performance, support for the latest multimedia standards and 4K displays, and exceptional power efficiency in a 6nm-class chip.
This highly integrated, powerful and extendable platform supports several high-speed interfaces, such as PCI-Express, USB 3.1 and GbE MAC, and also supports MediaTek Wi-Fi 6E and sub-6 5G modules to meet a wide range of connectivity needs.
The Genio 1200’s highly capable octa-core CPU, five core graphics, dual-core AI processor and advanced multimedia engines make it ideal for advanced smart home appliances, industrial IoT applications and other demanding AI-embedded devices.
