MediaTek's MT5595 quad-core big.LITTLE SoC incorporates two high-performance ARM Cortex-A17 and two ultra-efficient ARM Cortex-A7 processors. It also supports Google VP9 and HEVC codecs designed for 4K2K content streaming at 60 frames per second for a smooth playback experience.
MT5595 has already entered into silicon mass production. It will be used in the first Sony Android TV incorporating Sony's picture-quality algorithm, and enable Android 5.0 Lollipop software to run.
Support for Android Wear
MediaTek also unveiled the MT2601 System on Chip (SoC) for wearable devices based on Google's Android Wear software.
The MT2601 packs a set of features in its small size with 41.5 percent fewer components and lower current consumption when compared with other chipsets in the market. It includes 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A7, ARM Mali-400 MP GPU, and supports qHD display resolution. The MT2601 interfaces with a whole host of external sensors and the wireless connectivity SoC MT6630 for Bluetooth - all in a PCBA footprint of less than 480 mm2.
The MT2601 is in mass production now and ready for inclusion in Android Wear devices.
