The company said MT7687 chip provides lower power consumption to ensure maximum performance with a minimal impact on device power. The MT7687 has the ability to transmit at a maximum power output of 21dBm. Security is achieved through AES and 3DES/SHA2 protocols as security engines.

Additional MT7687 advantages:

# An ARM Cortex-M4F MCU
# 1×1 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi subsystem designed for power efficiency and robust connectivity
# 192Mhz / 200Mhz for Cortex M4
# embedded SRAM / ROM and a serial flash in package
# compact module for Smart Home appliances / devices
# integrated security engine that makes the appliances/devices more secure
