The Taiwanese chipmaker Mediatek, known for its mobile device processors, is now expanding into the IoT world with the new MT2621 SoC, which is designed to bring extended coverage with dual mode NB-IoT and GSM/GPRS to smart trackers, wearables, IoT security and industrial applications. According to Mediatek, “MT2621 is ideal for long-life designs and long-term installations, anticipating future cellular network infrastructure change-over from GSM to NB-IoT.”

The chip supports one SIM card with an antenna that covers both NB-IoT R14 and GSM/GPRS cellular networks through a wideband front-end module that is 3GPP Rel-14 compliant. This design aims to address worldwide markets, providing lower costs and reduced development times. The MT2621 is based on a single-core ARMv7 CPU clocked at 260 MHz, which comes with 160 KB cache and 4 MB embedded memory. Supported interfaces include PMU, RF, Modem DSP, and Bluetooth 4.2, along with camera and audio amplifiers.

Since Mediatek sells its chips directly to OEMs, no information on pricing is availabe for now.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
