MediaTek brings MT2523 for smart watches

MediaTek India
MediaTek on Monday announced the MT2523 series designed for fitness smart watches — ahead of CES 2016 in the U.S.

The chipset vendor claims that it is the world’s first system-in-package (SiP) to offer GPS, dual-mode Bluetooth Low Energy, and a MIPI-supported mobile screen.

The SiP’s printed circuit board area is 41 percent smaller than competitors’ solutions. Devices powered by MT2523 can last more than a week on one battery charge.

The MCU enables wearable devices with lower power consumption and smaller form factors than Android Wear. The display component supports MIPI-DSI and serial interfaces, resulting in a high-resolution mobile screen.

MT2523’s low power comes from its ARM Cortex-M4 processor. MediaTek will be offering the SiP to global device makers starting in the first half of 2016.
