Marc Naddell is VP of Ecosystems at MediaTek, one of the leading chipset manufacturers behind the IoT ecosystem.

He came to the ReadWrite office to sit with Christopher Caen and talk about how one of the leading chipset providers in the industry managed to get ahead of the hardware curve in developing for IoT.

The MediaTek team, based in San Jose, also realized they were uniquely positioned to lead this new market as the major chipset provider for consumer electronics and fabless semiconductors.

Last year, MediaTek shipped more than 1.5 billion chipsets overall for various devices, including smartphones and tablets.

When they evaluated the opportunities for companies to drive new products and revenue within IoT, they saw the alignment with MediaTek s capabilities and began to develop new chipsets.

To start, they launched MediaTek Labs and their first MediaTek LinkIt development platform LinkIt ONE in September 2014 and worked closely with IoT developers to understand the next wave of products.
