Alibaba Tmall Genie X1 powered by MT8516

The Alibaba Tmall Genie X1 is a smart speaker compatible with the AliGenie Al assistant. Inside it's powered by the new MediaTek’s MT8516 chip - built specifically for Cloud-connected AI assistants - so it can receive voice instructions and do things like control smart homes, play music and shop online by recording your shopping lists without having to reach for a smartphone or PC.

The MT8516 uses a quartet of the latest ARM Cortex-A35 cores clocked at up to 1.3GHz, with an extensive set of interfaces and very flexible memory and NAND support to meet specific cost and design targets. The 360° omni-directional microphone can pick up sounds from 5 meters away and is complemented by Bluetooth 4.0 LE and Wi-Fi connectivity. MediaTek’s unique PowerAQ tool is available for product designers, providing an easy GUI interface for signal flow design and audio parameter turning, removing the need for an additional DSP.
