In the months leading up to CES, my inbox was pounded daily with pitches about revolutionary, world’s [fill in the blank] wearables, as well as the smartest, most secure, easiest-to-use, world’s [fill in the blank] smart home solutions. Most of that is marketing bluster, and that’s actually been a notable problem in those markets. There are too many problems unsolved, too many pretenders, and too much is proprietary.MediaTek is well aware of all of this, but as a chip maker, it’s working to resolve some of the above issues and also assert itself in those markets by underpinning any number of solutions. The company released the MT2523 SoC for smartwatches and other wearables and the MT7697 for smart home devices. (It also has the MT8581, a new Blu-ray SoC.)
