Today, MediaTek announced its T750 5G chipset, which will be the solution for the fixed wireless routers and mobile hotspots in order to bring 5G connectivity into homes.
The T750 is built on a 7nm process with an integrated 5G radio and quad-core ARM CPU.
JC Hsu, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of MediaTek’s wireless communications business unit said in an official blog,
“Pervasive high-speed broadband connectivity is becoming more important with the increase in connected devices and the surge of people working from home, taking online classes and using services like tele-health and video calling.”
“We are extending our 5G leadership beyond the smartphone segment with the T750 chipset, opening up new markets for broadband operators and device makers, and helping consumers – no matter where they live – to experience all the advantages of 5G connectivity.”
- supports both standalone and non-standalone (SA/NSA) sub-6GHz 5G networks. This means you won’t get gigabit speeds in your home, but it can deliver broadband speeds in rural areas where fiber cables are not built.
- supports two-component 5G FR1 carrier aggregation in both Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and Time Division Duplex (TDD)modes
- Supports up to 5CC LTE carrier aggregation
- The chipset has an embedded GPU to support a 720P HD display
- It has four PCIe interfaces to connect with external Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
- The chipset has two 2.5Gbps Serial Gigabit Media Independent Interfaces (SGMII) for LAN connections
- lastly a PCM interface for land-line phones
The company is currently sampling the T750 with potential customers. The plan of the company is to enter the areas with limited DSL, and fiber cables and market its alternative solution.
