LTE SOC to drive 64-bit mobile computing

February 24, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Designed to provide next-generation computing, the MT6732 64-bit LTE SOC from Mediatek comprises a coherent 64-bit ARM quad-core, 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 cluster and Mali-T760 GPU.

The Mali-T760 GPU supports Open GL ES 3.0 and Open CL 1.2 APIs as well as premium graphics for gaming and UI effects

The SoC targets the Super-mid Market, consisting of billions of consumers ready to adopt smart devices with premium features at mainstream prices — many for the very first time.

The MT6732 supports low-power, 1080p, 30fps video playback supporting the emerging video codec standard H.265 and legacy H.264 and 1080p, 30fps H.264 video recording. An integrated 13MP camera image signal processor provides unique features such as PIP (Picture-in-Picture), VIV (Video in Video) and Video Face Beautifier, while MediaTek ClearMotion™ technology eliminates motion jitter and ensures smooth video playback at 60fps on mobile devices. The SoC also boasts MediaTek MiraVision™ technology for DTV-grade picture quality.

The integrated multi-mode 4G LTE modem supports Release 9, Category 4 FDD and TDD LTE (150 Mb/s downlink, 50 Mb/s uplink); 3GPP Release 8, DC-HSPA+ (42 Mb/s downlink, 11 Mb/s uplink), as well as TD-SCDMA and EDGE for legacy 2G/3G networks.

The SoC offers dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The MT6732 platform will be commercially available by Q3 of 2014, with devices expected by the end of the year.
