MediaTek unveiled its new Genio platform for AIoT devices and introduced the first chip in the Genio family, the Genio 1200 designed for premium AIoT products.
MediaTek Genio is a complete platform stack for the AIoT with powerful and ultra-efficient chipsets, open platform software development kits (SDKs) and a developer portal with comprehensive resources and tools. This all-in-one platform makes it easy for brands to develop innovative consumer and enterprise smart applications at the premium, mid-range and entry levels, and bring these devices to market faster.
With MediaTek Genio, customers have access to all the hardware, software and resources needed to go from concept to design and manufacturing. Customers can choose from a range of Genio chips to suit their product needs, and then use MediaTek’s developer resources and open platform SDKs to customize their designs. MediaTek also makes it easy for customers to access its partners’ system hardware and software, and leverage partners’ networks and sales channels. By offering an integrated, easy-to-use platform, MediaTek Genio reduces development costs and speeds up time to market, while providing long-term support for operating system updates and security patches that extend the product lifecycle.
“Today MediaTek powers the most popular AIoT devices on the market. As the industry enters the next era of innovation, MediaTek’s Genio platform delivers flexibility, scalability and development support brands need to cater to the latest market demands,” said Jerry Yu, MediaTek Corporate Senior Vice President and General Manager of MediaTek’s Computing, Connectivity and Metaverse Business Group. “We look forward to seeing the new user experiences brands bring to life with our Genio 1200 chip and its powerful AI capability, support for 4K displays and advanced imaging features.”
Open Platform AIoT SDK
The Genio open platform AIoT SDKs allow designers to customize multiple products with the same software pack, which supports Android, Linux, Yocto and Ubuntu operating systems. By streamlining the writing and coding of each software application layer, customers can develop their products with minimal support – regardless of the type of application.
Developer Resources and Partner Ecosystem
MediaTek’s Genio developer portal gives customers access to a wide range of developer tools, along with access to partners’ system hardware and software. Furthermore, brands can use the portal to take advantage of partners’ networks and sales channels. This range of development tools and partner support makes it easy for brands of all sizes to streamline the design of AIoT products and speed up time-to-market.
The MediaTek Genio chipsets offer fast multicore performance with extreme power-efficiency, optimizing the user experience for even the most compute-intensive AI applications. The CPU, GPU and AI Processing Unit (APU) in each Genio chipset work together to enhance intelligent autonomous capabilities at the edge and support high quality displays, cameras and more. Additionally, each chipset offers support for the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth protocols to deliver seamless connectivity.
The Genio series includes premium, mid-tier and entry-level system-on-chips (SoCs) and modules to address different market and application needs such as:
- Genio 1200 for premium AIoT applications that need best-in-class performance, support for the latest multimedia standards and 4K displays, and exceptional power efficiency

The new Genio 1200 combines best-in-class performance, support for the latest multimedia standards and 4K displays, and exceptional power efficiency in a 6nm-class chip. This highly integrated, powerful and extendable platform supports several high-speed interfaces, such as PCI-Express, USB 3.1 and GbE MAC, and also supports MediaTek Wi-Fi 6E and sub-6 5G modules to meet a wide range of connectivity needs.
The Genio 1200’s highly capable octa-core CPU, five core graphics, dual-core AI processor and advanced multimedia engines make it ideal for advanced smart home appliances, industrial IoT applications and other demanding AI-embedded devices. The Genio 1200 can drive multiple 4K displays and touchscreens, and also receive and process ultra-high definition display and camera inputs from a range of computer vision (CV) applications.

UBON will use different products from its wide range of gadgets for this campaign like Neck Bands, Headphones, Earbuds, Chargers, Power Banks, and Speakers.
UBON’s new campaign will excite consumers by showing how Mothers can be rockstars as well and have a good time while showering the same amount of love and care. With this campaign, people will get to share the #RockstarMoms posters by UBON and they can also tag their loved ones.”
