DSP Concepts, Elliptic Labs and Esper are the four tech partners that have joined MediaTek’s program.
Innocomm, Ologic, Sasken and Synapse are other three design services firms that are also on-board MediaTek’s Rich IoT program.
MediaTek’s Rich IoT program includes three AIoT chipset platforms: i300B (MT8362B) for voice assistant devices, i300A (MT8362A) for multimedia displays and i500 (MT8385) for AI vision devices.
The Rich IoT program aims to push the development cycle and minimize design risks for enterprises, startups, emerging brands and leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
MediaTek’s engineers have collaborated with partners to port and optimize value-add offerings on MediaTek’s AIoT platforms, enabling companies to integrate exciting AI features and capabilities into the i300B, i300A and i500 chipsets. This will help to bring cutting-edge connected products and services to consumers quickly and cost-effectively.
“Our Rich IoT program is enabling our partners to keep up with the surging market demand for smart home devices with AI-powered voice assistant, multimedia and vision capabilities,” said Jerry Yu, MediaTek Corporate SVP and GM – Intelligent Devices Business Group.
“MediaTek’s AIoT chipsets have been optimized for partners’ solutions so companies of all sizes can design a wide range of IoT devices with edge-AI capabilities, deliver exciting new user experiences and address new market opportunities,” added Yu.
Our partnership with MediaTek brings customers cost-efficient and accurate presence-detection and touch-free gesture capabilities,” Laila Danielsen, CEO – Elliptic Labs, explained.
“Our AI Virtual Smart Sensor platform enables a multitude of virtual sensor capabilities, all with a customizable field of view up to 360 degrees based on our core ultrasound technology,” added Danielsen.
MediaTek’s i300B, i300A and i500 include powerful edge AI technology for voice, display, object recognition and other features needed for today’s smart devices.
The chipsets are highly integrated with CPU, GPU and AI Processing Unit (APU) and ultra-low power consumption to support the processing demands of next generation AI devices.
The hardware platforms include board support package (BSP) software that is designed to be open-source and up streamed at a quarterly release cadence, and support over-the-air (OTA) updates to enable security updates for Linux, OpenSSL and Yocto.
These security features make it easier for device manufacturers to patch vulnerabilities and protect consumers’ data. Software is available as Linux and Android builds.
