Media Tek Red Cap M60

RedCap, which stands for “reduced capability,” is designed to bring the benefits of lightweight 5G to consumer, enterprise, and industrial IoT devices. Taking advantage of networks that have adopted the latest 5G Standalone (SA) architecture, RedCap promises to deliver connection reliability and improved power efficiency for devices that have low bandwidth and high power-efficiency requirements, offering many of the benefits of 5G without the cost and complexity of 5G broadband solutions designed for devices such as smartphones, laptops, and CPE. In November 2023, MediaTek launched its M60 modem IP, which is specifically designed for 5G RedCap applications.

Introducing the MediaTek T300

Building on the M60 modem IP, the MediaTek T300 series is the world’s first 6nm Radio Frequency System-On-Chip (RFSOC) single die solution for 5G RedCap. The MediaTek T300 series integrates a single-core Arm Cortex-A35 in a significantly compact PCB area, while supporting up to 227 Mbps downlink and 122 Mbps uplink data rates.

Highly Compact Platform

This RFSOC allows brands to capitalize on the emerging market with highly power-efficient, compact and reliably connected designs for a wide-range of markets including enterprise, industrial, consumer IoT, wearables, and data-card applications.

Incredibly Power Efficient

The MediaTek T300 series, and the M60 5G modem IP it stems from, support the 3GPP R17 standard and combine MediaTek’s industry-leading power efficiency with coverage enhancements and extremely low latency. By leveraging MediaTek’s UltraSave 4.0 technology and reducing unnecessary paging receptions, the M60 offers up to a 70% reduction in power consumption compared to similar 5G eMBB solutions, and up to 75% power savings compared to 4G LTE solutions.
