MT6825

3GPP Release-17 IoT-NTN Satellite Communication Solution

MT6825 is a highly integrated, extremely power-efficient, and robust IoT-NTN connectivity solution that can provide global satellite coverage for mobile applications such as messaging, tracking, and emergency services, as well as large-scale satellite IoT applications such as remote monitoring of utilities, infrastructure management, maritime, connected agriculture, fleet management, telematics, and more.

MediaTek has been a significant driver in the formulation and implementation of the 3GPP Non-Terrestrial-Network (NTN) standard, which was created to overcome coverage issues and difficult use-cases that ground-based infrastructure alone cannot address.

Highly Integrated, Ultra-efficient Platform

The highly integrated MT6825 combines an Arm Cortex-M4F, PSRAM, Flash memory, cellular/satellite transceiver (RF), and a power management unit (PMU) in an extremely compact package, reducing time-to-market, while multiple interfaces allow easy platform integration. MediaTek's sophisticated power-efficiency technologies ensure the chip is particularly suitable for battery-powered devices such as smartphones or other mobile UE.

3GPP Release-17 Standard Connectivity

MT6825 supports 3GPP Release-17 (IoT-NTN) at L-band and S-band frequencies for satellite communications.

Awards

MT6825 has been awarded “Disruptive Device Innovation Award” at the Asia Mobile Awards, held during MWC Shanghai 2023.
