Mediatek MT2502 “Aster” SoC for wearables and IoT was released in 2014 with an ARM7 MCU, built-in Bluetooth, PMIC, and GSM/GPRS modem, and support for external WiFi and GPS chips. The upcoming MT2503 integrates functionality even further as GPS is now embedded inside the SoC, and Shenzhen Alpha Telecom Technology demonstrated their M009 smartwatch based on the latest Mediatek SoC at CES Asia 2016 in Shanghai.
- SoC – Mediatek MT2503 ARM7 processor with GSM/GPRS modem, Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR 2.1, GPS (MT3333), PMIC
- Display – 1.22″ or 1.3″ 240×240 resolution TFT display
- Cellular Connectivity – SIM card
- Sensors – HRM, pressure sensor
- Misc – 2x buttons
- Dimensions – 36 x 32 x 11 mm
There will be two version of the processor MT2503A and MT2503D with the former supporting external serial flash.
If you’d like to integrate a ready to use module in your design, ATS Link provides W120 module with the processor and all required extra components.
The video in Italian below shows Shenzhen Alpha’s M009 smartwatch, as well as another model – H009 – based on Rockchip RK6321 processor, which I previously thought to be canceled, as it was born from the now defunct Intel and Rockchip partnership.
