MediaTek Targets Android Developers with New Helio X20 IoT Development Board

Richard Harris Richard Harris in IoT Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Targeting Android IoT developers, MediaTek has introduced a new Helio X20 Development Board, based on MediaTek’s Helio X20 mobile processor, offering a development board using Tri-Cluster deca-core structure  and ARM Cortex-A72 technology. 

The MediaTek Helio X20 is based on the Linaro 96 Boards standard, featuring ARM Cortex-A72 cores within a tri-cluster, deca-core processing architecture. This state-of-the-art platform provides computing performance coupled with power efficiency adding to MediaTek’s Internet of Things (IoT) offerings and is designed for Android developers who can use the board to build solutions for existing and emerging markets including virtual reality, advanced driver assisted systems (ADAS), mobile point-of-sale, smart signage, vending machines and more.  

The new board leverages MediaTek involvement with Linaro, an open-source organization, to support the 96Boards open hardware standard. Using the Linaro 96Boards specification, the Helio X20 is compatible with other 96Boards products for other solutions.

MediaTek’s Helio X20 Development Board leverages the Tri-Cluster deca-core structure  to efficiently handle different types of workloads. It can delegate simple tasks to one cluster of cores, while directing more complex and more power-hungry tasks to the other clusters,  

The Helio X20 Development Board will be available in Asia soon and can be purchased from ArcherMind Technology.
