RedCap technology and new chipset family to accelerate device transition to 5G

MediaTek has expanded its lineup of IoT modems and chipsets to support 5G RedCap technology.

The M60 IP modem and the MediaTek T300 series of chipsets are built on TSMC's 6nm technology to transition to 5G autonomous (SA) networks. They are designed to support applications requiring longer and more efficient battery life, such as wearable devices, lightweight AR devices, IoT modules and edge AI-enabled devices.

The T300 is RedCap's first-ever 6nm single-core chip (RFSOC), which utilizes a low-power Arm Cortex-A35 processor in a compact PCB footprint. It supports data rates up to 227 Mbps downlink and 122 Mbps uplink.

Both the T300 series and the M60 5G modem support the 3GPP R17 standard and combine MediaTek's UltraSave 4.0 power efficiency. With this technology, the M60 reduces power consumption by up to 70% compared to 5G eMBB and up to 75% compared to 4G LTE.

MediaTek's T300 series chipsets will be available in the first half of 2024, with commercial samples available in the second half of 2024.
