Samsung has unveiled its new Samsung Artik Smart IoT platform products with the goal in mind of giving IoT-innovating companies the tools they need to jump into the IoT market. Not only does Samsung boast this product line’s ability to give IoT solutions better communication between one-another, but it features end-to-end security enhancements.
Unveiled at the IoT World 2017 conference, this end-to-end IoT platform includes everything a company needs to develop its technology, collect and manage data, and to go to market with their products.
On the hardware end of Samsung’s Artik platform are the Artik modules. Wi-Fi based IoT modules with built-in hardware security enable product developers to rapidly prototype their ideas and connect their products directly to Samsung’s Artik Cloud.
These modules include the brand new Artik 053, a tiny module a little larger than a quarter and shaped like a stick of gum. It features a 32-bit ARM Cortex R4 running at 320MHz for applications, 29 dedicated GPIO ports, and a robust on-board security subsystem.
It is fully Wi-Fi compatible and small enough to fit in even the smallest single-function IoT device. Also available are the even smaller Artik 020 and 030 modules, as well as the series 5, 7, and 10 module family for larger and more robust IoT applications.
