Rich IoT

Innovation in Voice, Display, and AI Vision categories

MediaTek's Rich IoT program features a series of AI-supported chipset platforms that are enabling companies to innovate and develop products across the breadth of intelligent devices market. As the market leader of chips for voice assistant devices (VAD), we work with the world’s most well-known brands to power intelligent devices, such as smart speakers and sound bars. MediaTek's Rich IoT program is spurring AI innovation with its platforms that enterprises, startups, emerging brands and leading OEMs in diverse markets can use; designing a wide range of IoT devices with edge-AI capabilities, new user experiences and addressing new market opportunities. 

MediaTek's Rich IoT program is targeted at three primary segments:

1. Voice Enabled Devices 

Products with voice assistant capability like smart speakers, kitchen and cleaning appliances, smart locks and more.

2. Display Oriented Devices 

Smart hub products or those that require touchscreens displays like thermostats, head-mounted displays, point of sale terminals, exercise equipment and more.

3. AI Vision Devices 

Products that need to recognize objects or people, like smart security systems, smart ovens, robots, drones and more.
