Taiwanese chip firm MediaTek has recently announced its foray into the increasingly crowded Internet of Things (IoT) arena with the launch of a new IoT and wearables initiative to assist developers.
The new initiative - called 'MediaTek Labs' - was launched by MediaTek on Monday, September 22. The initiative underscores MediaTek's efforts to enable software and hardware developers to use its technology for building apps and devices for the fast-growing IoT and wearables markets.
Launching the new initiative, MediaTek said that the 'MediaTek Labs' program will essentially assist "developers of any background or skill level" to develop as well as manufacture new wearable tech devices and IoT systems using MediaTek chips.
The newly-launched 'MediaTek Labs' program is being built on MediaTek's Aster (MT2502) chipset and the LinkIt Development Platform for small, robust devices, featuring support for different communications protocols like Wi- Fi and Bluetooth.
Noting that the launch of 'MediaTek Labs' opens up "a new world of possibilities for everyone-from hobbyists and students through to professional developers and designers-to unleash their creativity and innovation," MediaTek Labs VP Marc Naddell said that the new initiative will hopefully "drive the next wave of consumer gadgets and apps that will connect billions of things and people around the world."
