A familiar tradition preceding CES, are announcements being made by various companies, that will feature at CES. Chip makers, MediaTek, have followed tradition having revealed the new MT2523 processor series.

Designed for active and fitness smart watches, it is the world’s first system-in-package (SiP) to offer GPS, dual-mode Bluetooth Low Energy, and a MIPI-supported high-resolution mobile screen.

The MT2523 combines long battery life, high-quality display technology, and small chip size to provide for optimum user experience. The SiP’s printed circuit board area is 41 percent smaller than competitors’ solutions. In comparison to other wearables, devices powered by MT2523 can last more than a week on one battery charge.

According to MediaTek, the MT2523 product family is based around a highly integrated system in package (SiP) that contains a micro controller unit (MCU), dual-mode Bluetooth, GPS and a power management unit (PMU). The MCU enables wearable devices with lower power consumption and smaller form factors than Android Wear. The display component supports MIPI-DSI and serial interfaces, resulting in a high-resolution mobile screen. It includes 2D capabilities of true color, per pixel alpha channel and anti-aliasing fonts, plus 1-bit index color to save memory and computing power. MT2523’s low power comes from its ARM Cortex-M4 processor, which combines high-efficiency signal processing functionality with low power, low cost and ease-of-use benefits.
