MediaTek Dimensity 5G Open Resource Architecture
MediaTek, the world’s largest chipmaker has announced the launch of an interesting venture that may allow small smartphone vendors get the experience of custom tweaking chipset resources to offer better streamlined features on their smartphones.
Called the Dimensity 5G Open Resource Architecture, the move will allow OEMs to access the core hardware and software used in the Dimensity 1200 SoC, and either tweak these aspects to their liking, or alter them altogether with custom resources. The one key thing that this does is give OEMs the ability to bake their custom algorithms directly at the chip level, therefore essentially operating the Dimensity 1200 SoC like their own tech stack of sorts.
Based on what MediaTek has put out so far, the Dimensity 5G Open Resource Architecture will allow phone makers access to elements such as the AI co-processor and the display algorithms in the Dimensity 1200 SoC.
Dimensity 5G Open Resource Architecture should be a big deal — particularly for small smartphone makers that do not have the resources to independently develop custom SoCs. These brands constitute most of the present day smartphone world, and make for a bulk of the vendors around the world as well.
