【Mobile World Congress 2011】 自社製品の応用範囲の広さをアピールするMediaTek

MediaTekブース バルセロナで開催中のMobile World Congressでは、無線通信などの半導体メーカーMediaTekも出展している。 MediaTekは台湾の新興企業で、工場を持たない、いわゆるファブレスの半導体メーカー。携帯電話の通信関連やGPSなどのチップも手がけていて、とくに新興市場向けの安価な端末向けのチップでシェアが高い。昨年、NTTドコモはMediaTekに対し、LTEプラットフォームのライセンス提供契約を締結している。 ブースでは、同社のチップを採用する各社の携帯電話などの製品に加え、同社のチップセットのリファレンス端末も展示されていた。リファレンス端末は、HSPA対応のAndroid端末とフルタッチフィーチャーフォン、GSM対応の低コスト端末の3種類が展示されていた。 たとえば「MT6573」というチップセットのリファレンス端末は、Android 2.2を搭載するスマートフォンになっている。通信方式としては、HSPA Rel.6に対応し、プロセッサは650MHzのARMコア。Bluetooth、無線LAN、FMラジオ、GPSなどの各種インターフェイスを備えている。このままコンシューマーが購入するような製品ではないが、チップベンダーがこうしたリファレンス機を用意することで、端末ベンダーが同社のチップを使って端末を作りやすくしている。 Androidタイプのリファレンス機 Androidタイプのリファレンス機のスペック フルタッチフィーチャーフォンのリファレンス機 フィーチャーフォンのリファレンス機のスペック 低コストタイプのリファレンス機 低コストタイプのリファレンス機のスペック さまざまな製品にMediaTekのチップが使われている     白根雅彦/ケータイ Watch
