NEW DELHI: Taiwanese semi-conductor company MediaTek on Thursday launched a new chipset designed to enable Voice Assistant Devices (VADs) and smart speakers, including the Google Assistant.

"Smart home products are growing in popularity and MediaTek's expertise is making connected devices smarter, smaller and more power efficient without sacrificing performance," said Joe Chen, Executive Vice President and Co-COO of MediaTek.

MT8516 is equipped with a quad-core, 64-bit ARM Cortex-A35 MPCore operating at up to 1.3GHz. 

The chipset also pre-integrates "WiFi 802.11 b/g/n" and Bluetooth 4.0. 

"Our dedicated Android support will help expand the market for voice-based intelligent devices," added Chen.

New Google Assistant devices using MT8516 are expected to hit the marker later this year.
