Exactly! I didn't realize Mediatek was powering so many of my smart home devices and now that I know it is very impressive indeed

    In this day and age any specific piece of IoT hardware is irrelevant - the only thing that matters is what standard it uses to communicate. Props for not saying a single word about that... ZWave? Zigbee? LoRa? Hypa Supa Mesh-Bluetooth-On-A-Stick?!? Something entirely new...? All we know is "it's not WiFi". Well, while you're perfectly right about power, people would do well to keep in mind there's a very good reason the ESP8266 got as ludicrously popular as it did...

      Ohh good from MTK.

        I dunno, maybe only me excited too see such full frequency band support in such tiny size.. I've made a 20x30mm and still not all band.. Damn, this just shows what big company can do..

            Soon, a company will come out with brain assistance.
