Taiwanese fabless semiconductor firm MediaTek on Tuesday unveiled its Dimensity household of highly effective 5G system-on-chips (SoCs) providing a mix of connectivity, multimedia, synthetic intelligence (AI) and imaging improvements for premium and flagship smartphones. The corporate additionally launched Dimensity 1000 — its first 5G cell SoC in its 5G household of chipsets. The only 5G chip answer, with its built-in 5G modem, is a mix of superior applied sciences packed right into a 7nm chip and tuned for 5G efficiency.
The primary set of Dimensity powered units will begin hitting the market within the first quarter of 2020.
“Our Dimensity sequence is a fruits of MediaTek’s funding in 5G and positions us as a frontrunner driving 5G growth and innovation. Our 5G know-how goes head-to-head with anybody within the trade,” MediaTek President Joe Chen, mentioned in an announcement.
“We selected the identify Dimensity to spotlight how our 5G options are driving new waves of innovation and experiences, very like the fabled fifth dimension. Our first introduced chip, MediaTek Dimensity 1000, provides shoppers a considerably quicker, extra clever and all-around unbelievable cell expertise,” added Chen.
The Dimensity sequence integrates MediaTek’s 5G modem in a single compact design, thus, delivering important energy financial savings in comparison with competing options.
The Dimensity 1000 5G SoC helps 5G two provider aggregation (2CC CA) and boasts the world’s quickest throughput SoC with 4.7 Gbps downlink and a pair of.5 Gbps uplink speeds over sub-6 GHz networks, the corporate mentioned.
The chipset is designed to assist each stand alone and non-stand alone (SA/NSA) sub-6 GHz networks and consists of multi-mode assist for each mobile connectivity technology from 2G to 5G.
It additionally integrates the newest Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1+ requirements for the quickest and best native wi-fi connectivity, providing greater than 1G bps throughput in each downlink and uplink speeds.
Dimensity 1000 is designed for world sub-6 GHz 5G networks which might be launching in Asia, North America and Europe.
