Focus on Industrial, Smart Home

With a focus on power efficiency, the MediaTek Genio 700 is an N6 (6nm) IoT chipset that features two ARM A78 cores running at 2.2GHz and six ARM A55 cores at 2.0GHz while providing 4.0 TOPs AI accelerator. Moreover, it comes with support for FHD60+4K60 display, as well as an ISP for better images.

“When we launched the Genio family of IoT products last year, we designed the platform with the scalability and development support that brands need. (This paves) the way for opportunities to continue expanding,” said Richard Lu, Vice President of MediaTek IoT Business Unit. “With a focus on industrial and smart home products, the Genio 700 is a perfect natural addition to the lineup to ensure we can provide the widest range of support possible to our customers.”

The Genio 700 SDK allows designers to customize products using Yocto Linux, Ubuntu, and Android. With this support, customers can easily develop their own products with a minimal amount of effort, regardless of application type.
