As one of the world’s largest suppliers of 4G LTE cellular modems, MediaTek technologies power millions of users worldwide with mobile connectivity. 

MediaTek has aggressively invested in 4G technologies and successfully launched MediaTek WorldMode chipsets which can support 4G LTE-Advanced (FDD-LTE and TDD-LTE), and legacy 3G/2G technologies such as WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000/EVDO, EDGE and GSM.

We continue to evolve our cellular modem technologies with the launch of its Cat-10 4G LTE WorldMode modem in 2017 within our latest MediaTek Helio line of smartphone platforms.

4 G Lte Keeping People Connected


MediaTek modems employ the perfect combination of speed, agility, and power efficiency to match how mobile users share, connect and consume, today.

Clarity and Consistency for Calls

LTE provides the best sound quality and reliability to get the most out of calls. A 4G LTE WorldMode modem by MediaTek contains a comprehensive, advanced IMS (IP multimedia sub-system) which means reception and connectivity issues are a thing of the past.


New for 2017, MediaTek’s 3rd generation LTE modem is capable of C-10 speeds of up to 450Mbps downlink with 3x Carrier Aggregation and 100mbps uplink with 2x Carrier Aggregation, and includes both WorldMode TDD and FDD operating modes.

In addition to LTE cellular technologies, new LWA (LTE and Wi-Fi) and LTE-U (unlicensed) are both supported, offering best use of unlicensed bands to improve coverage and performance.  

Its advanced IMS (IP multimedia sub-system) includes: VoLTE, ViLTE, RCS, WFC 2.0, EVS (enhanced voice services) codec and SWB support. 

Overall the single chip RF design raises the bar of cellular silicon integration and efficiency; reducing overall package size, power use and streamlines cost for product designers.

Envelope Tracking Module (ETM 2.0)

MediaTek’s ETM technology monitors the voltage supplied to the RF power amplifier in real-time, and uses continual, fine-grained voltage adjustments to optimize the power amplifier’s efficiency. 

By ensuring the power amplifier is operating at peak efficiency it reduces heat generated in the phone, particularly during LTE-A and Carrier Aggregated service use. 

Our second generation Envelope Tracking Module (ETM 2.0) can boost peak voltage, reducing transmission (TX) current consumption and improving power amplification (PA) efficiency.

Extensive DSDS support

Industry-leading multi-SIM 4.0 technology supports 17 combinations of DSDS (dual SIM dual standby), including dual 4G LTE SIMs with dual VoLTE, ViLTE.

TAS 2.0

MediaTek’s TAS 2.0 is a smart antenna technology that seamlessly auto-switches between antenna operating states, to retain optimal connectivity and high throughput. It avoids unnecessarily high antenna power amplification by the baseband system, reducing heat generated; improving operational efficiency and extending battery life.

CAT-7 (DL) / CAT-13 (UL) 4G LTE

MediaTek’s Cat-7 (DL) / Cat-13 (UL) 4G LTE WorldMode modem focuses on a low power design that sees a 3-6% advantage over the previous generation built on the same process technology. Performance is balanced between download and upload, offering a combination of Cat-7 (DL) / Cat-13 (UL) speeds at 300Mbit/s download and 150Mbit/s upload with 2x20 MHz Carrier Aggregation

It includes TAS 2.0 smart antenna technology and an optional Envelope Tracking Module (ETM 2.0). Both further MediaTek’s sustained performance and optimal user experience goals.


MediaTek’s WorldMode 4G LTE Category 6 modem is a single, highly integrated RF module that supports both FDD and TDD LTE (R.11) networks and delivers speeds of up to 300Mbps downlink / 50Mbps uplink.

It supports 2x20 Carrier Aggregation, global Dual-SIM Dual Standby (L+W DSDS support), VoLTE, ViLTE, and Wi-Fi calling services that keep call continuity between LTE and Wi-Fi connections. 

Legacy support for 2G/3G networks includes HSPA+ R8 (42Mbps/11Mbps, TD-SCDMA Rel.7 (2.8/2.2 Mbps) and CDMA2000 1x/EVDO Rev. A with SRLTE support.

Envelope Tracking Module (ETM 1.0)

The MT6300 is MediaTek’s first generation Envelope Tracking Module (ETM 1.0) that complements our CAT-6 cellular modem. MediaTek’s ETM 1.0 package can save up to 20% current at max output power level.


MediaTek’s entry-level LTE Cat-4 cellular modem supports both Category 4 FDD and TDD LTE (R.9) at 150Mbps/50Mbps data speeds, with legacy support for 2G/3G networks including DC-HSPA+ 42/11 Mbps, TD-SCDMA and EDGE.
