LinkIt™ Assist 2502
MediaTek LinkIt™ Assist 2502 development platform offers device developers a professional environment in which to design and prototype the software and hardware for Wearable and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
The platform is based around the world’s smallest commercial System-on-Chip (SoC) for Wearable, MediaTek MT2502A. This SoC also works with MediaTek’s energy efficient Wi-Fi and GNSS companion chipsets. This means it’s now easier than ever to create devices that connect to other smart devices or to cloud applications and services directly.
LinkIt Assist 2502 development platform runs on top of the MT2502A and, when used, its companion GNSS and Wi-Fi chipsets, along with LCM CTP, Memory LCD and OLED screen (swappable). The LinkIt firmware is based on an RTOS kernel. On top of this kernel is a set of drivers, middleware and protocol stacks that expose the features of the chipsets and displays to a framework. A runtime environment then exposes features of the framework to a C-based API used to develop software with the LinkIt Assist 2502 SDK 2.0.
A C-based API, to access and control the hardware features of the MT2502A SoC and connected peripheral hardware
API calls to update software and firmware, offering the option to implement FOTA for devices
Comprehensive communications, media and UI capabilities, with support for:
- GSM, GPRS and Bluetooth 2.1 and 4.0 (from the MT2502A)
- Wi-Fi and GNSS (from companion chipsets)
- MP3/ AAC audio
- JPEG decode, vector fonts (powered by Etrump) and more
