The MediaTek S900 enters volume productionToday MediaTek and TSMC have announced that the MediaTek S900 - the industry's first 8K digital TV chip - has entered volume production. Built on TSMC's low-power 12nm FinFET Compact (12FFC) process, the MediaTek S900 is a flagship smart TV SoC supporting 8K resolution. It features a proprietary AI processor unit enabling next-generation AI picture quality (AI PQ) and MiraVision-Pro, supporting a variety of AI features for smart TVs, including facial recognition and AI scene recognition. Thus TVs can serve as control hubs for an AIoT ecosystem of connected smart devices with MediaTek's NeuroPilot AI development platform.

"TSMC has been a key strategic partner of MediaTek for a long time, and their advanced processes have consistently enabled MediaTek’s industry-leading designs with innovative features which have satisfied the stringent requirements of our SoC solutions," said H.W. Kao, Corporate Vice President of MediaTek. "We see a strong global demand for 8K televisions, and we are delighted to join hands with TSMC to collaborate on advanced technology for 8K TV SoCs to drive the growth of the premium smart TV segment."

"MediaTek has long been recognized as a leader in consumer electronics. TSMC is pleased to have the opportunity to continue our long history of collaboration and working together on such an innovative product as the S900," said Dr. Kevin Zhang, TSMC's Vice President of Business Development. "We will continue to expand our ultra-low power technology offering to help our customers to create AI-enabled SoCs to enrich smart homes for a smarter world."
