By Rich Pell

MediaTek Genio is offered as 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. This all-in-one platform, says the company, makes it easy for brands to develop innovative consumer , enterprise and industrial smart applications at the premium, mid-range and entry levels, and bring these devices to market faster.

The Genio open platform AIoT SDK allows designers to customize multiple products with the same software pack, which supports Yocto Linux. By streamlining the writing and coding of each software application layer, says the company, customers can develop their products with minimal support – regardless of the type of application.

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 CPU, GPU and AI Processing Unit (APU) in each Genio chipset work together to enhance intelligent autonomous capabilities at the edge and support high quality displays, cameras and more.

Additionally, each chipset offers support for the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth protocols to deliver seamless connectivity. The Genio series includes premium, mid-tier and entry-level system-on-chips (SoCs) and modules to address different market and application needs such as:

  • Genio 1200 for premium AIoT applications that need best-in-class performance, support for the latest multimedia standards and 4K displays, 4.8 TOPs AI accelerator, and exceptional power efficiency
  • Genio 500 for retail and commercial IoT applications that require high performance edge processing and advanced multimedia capabilities.
  • Genio 350 for hubs in portable and home environments that require lighter vision and voice edge processing.
  • Genio 130 for thin-OS and cloud-supported voic assistant devices that require an audio and microphone-orientated platform.

With a highly capable octa-core CPU, five-core graphics, dual-core AI processor and advanced multimedia engines, the Genio 1200 is offered as ideal for advanced smart home appliances, industrial IoT applications and other demanding AI-embedded devices. The Genio 1200 can also receive and process ultra-high definition display and camera inputs from a range of computer vision (CV) 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 6-nm-class chip. This highly integrated 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.

“Today MediaTek powers the most popular AIoT devices on the market,” says Jerry Yu, MediaTek Corporate Senior Vice President and General Manager of MediaTek’s Computing, Connectivity and Metaverse Business Group. “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. We look forward to seeing the new user experiences brands bring to life with the Genio 1200 and its powerful AI capability, support for 4K displays and advanced imaging features.”

The Genio 1200 will be commercially available starting in H2 2022.
