Mediatek Unveils MT2523 SiP for GPS Enabled, Bluetooth LE Wearables

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.
