Mediatek Unveils MT2523 SiP for GPS Enabled, Bluetooth LE Wearables

Orange Pi Development Boards

Silicon manufacturers are starting to launch ever more integrated solutions specifically designed for wearables, and after Samsung S3FBP5A bio-processor unveiled a few days ago, MediaTek has launched MT2623 ARM Cortex M4 System-in-Package (SiP) with GPS, Bluetooth LE, and a MIPI DSI interface.


Other details are sparse but here’s what the company disclosed for MT2523:

  • MCU core – ARM Cortex M4
  • GPU – 2D accelerator supporting true colors, per-pixel alpha channel, anti-aliasing fonts, and 1-bit index color to save memory.
  • Connectivity – Dual-mode Bluetooth Low Energy and GPS
  • Display – MIPI DSI and serial interfaces
  • Integrated PMU
  • Battery Life – More than a week (typical)

The SiP’s printed circuit board area is said to be 41% percent smaller than competitors’ solutions.

MT2523 will be available to manufacturers in H1 2016, and found in active and fitness smartwatches a little later.
