SoC supports AI voice-driven smart home devices
MediaTek (Hsinchu, Taiwan) is evolving its home entertainment platform by developing products that power artificial intelligence (AI) voice and vision capabilities in an array of smart home devices – highlighted by the launch of the MT8695, a 4K dongle SoC, and the MT8516 system on module (SoM) smart display system.

MediaTek supports multiple mainstream AI voice services including: Amazon Alexa; Google Assistant; Alibaba and Baidu – which includes both the China and global smart speaker markets, across multiple brands.

Building on this success, MediaTek is expanding its VAD Soc to various smart home appliances. The latest MT8516 SoM will give device designers and manufactures an easier path to enabling the AI voice capabilities of form factors such as alarm clocks, fire alarms, and other home appliances.

MediaTek is also introducing its smart display device based on MT8176 and MT8173. These SoCs support AI vision capabilities, for both home entertainment and surveillance systems.

With video at the heart of the connected home, MediaTek has launched MT8695, which claims to be the first 12nm SoC designed for 4K streaming on Dongle form factor.  With the ability for ultra-low power usage, the dongle supports core multimedia features including UHD 2160p at 60fps, HDR10 and Dolby Vision.

"Our industry heritage and strength in access point and connectivity solutions has enabled us to build a comprehensive multimedia platform that supports key AI capabilities and extends to a wide range of connected devices and autos," said Jerry Yu, MediaTek Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Home Entertainment Business Group.

MediaTek is not only focused on delivering state of the art application processors such as the MT8516, but are also driving connectivity innovations, including advancements in 802.11ac Wi-Fi, BT5.0 and improving whole home coverage.
