One of the top manufacturers of chipsets for a variety of gadgets, such as smartphones, Chromebooks, Smart TVs, Internet of Things devices, and more is MediaTek. Additionally, the company offers a variety of 5G modems as an alternative to popular models from Qualcomm and Samsung.
Recently, the MediaTek T800 5G modem has also been introduced together with a few new chips, promising a speed of up to 7.9Gbps. Although the business claims it may also be used for industrial IoT, M2M, and always-connected PCs, it is a component of the recently unveiled MediaTek Dimensity 9200 SoC.
The recently released MediaTek T800 is the T700’s successor, as the name suggests. It is a quick and effective modem that works on StandAlone (SA) and Non-StandAlone (NSA) networks with sub-6GHz and mmWave brands.
The Dual SIM Dual Standby functionality is also supported. The modem can give upload and download speeds of up to 4.2 and 7.9 gigabits per second, respectively. The modem fully supports 4CC carrier aggregation and the 5G 4GPP Release-16 specification. In contrast, the Snapdragon X70 modem from Qualcomm has a maximum download speed of 10 Gbps and an upload speed of 3.5 Gbps.
The MediaTek T800 5G modem features 5G UltraSave technology for reduced power consumption and is constructed on a 4nm node, which is also energy-efficient. Although it supports PCIe and USB host interfaces out of the box, there are various ways to connect it to the rest of the device. It offers FR1 Transceivers, an Envelope Tracking (ET) chip, an MLNA (Monolithic Low Noise Amplifier), a GNSS receiver, and related PMICs in addition to a fully integrated 3GPP Release-16 5G cellular modem.
