Mediatek has announced new technology solutions for the global market at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona. The new tech announced include Crossmount, SoC 8173 ARM tablet and a multimode wireless charging chipset.
CrossMount technology allows all your devices to operate as one, according to MediaTek. The new Crossmount standard lets devices share their hardware and software when they're on the same WiFi network. For e.g., you can use your phone's mic to dictate voice commands to your TV, or use your phone's webcam for a video chat on your tablet.
SoC 8173 ARM tablet
Mediatek has announced the MT8173 tablet SoC with powerful Cortex A72 processor. The quad core SoC is backed by two Cortex-A72 cores and two Cortex-A53 cores. The MT8173 offers up to 2.4GHz performance and supports OpenCL with the deployment of MediaTek's proprietary Corepilot 2.0. The SoC supports a 120Hz display and camera modules which can shoot up to 20-megapixel resolution images. At MWC, Mediatek displayed a prototype tablet using the MT8173 SoC. The first commercial devices using this processor are expected in Q2, 2015.
Multi-Mode Wireless Charging Chipset
Mediatek has also announced the MT3188 chipset, which allows multi-mode wireless charging device for wearables, smartphones and tablets. The MT3188 is an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) comprising power electronics, a resonator and a supervisory circuit. Mediatek says that the device has been certified by the A4WP, Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), and Power Matters Alliance (PMA) standards groups. The company has announced that the chipset is now in mass production.
