MediaTek MT7623 for IoT Gateways, MT7687 Low Power Wi-Fi for IoT devices

Posted by Gennie – June 7, 2015

MediaTek shows their new MT7623 quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 for IoT gateways, WiFi hotspots, and media routers using Linux, OpenWrt that supports 4x4 11ac, can deliver up to 2Gbps broadband service as well as the high throughput that is required by smart phones at home. MediaTek MT7683 features a world’s-first AP router with a Mali 450 GPU and HDMI/MIPI for displaying the status of connected IoT devices via a TV or display. MediaTek's Gateway IoT solution addresses the issue of bottlenecks in home gateways that people experience with existing routers on the market, as homes stream several HD or 4K video streams and stream to Smartphones, Tablets and IoT devices in the home. When YouTube or Netflix might be buffering in your home, it might be more often an issue with your home router than with net neutrality like backbone to last mile bandwidth issues, the ARM Processors in Home Gateways and Routers need to be upgraded to faster performance with more bandwidth within your home. Then MediaTek also launches the MT7687 for Wi-Fi N at a very low power consumption for IoT devices with a low power ARM Cortex-M4 on the SoC.
