Samsung, Silicon Labs collaborate on wireless modules for Internet of Things
Samsung Electronics has expanded its Artik Smart Internet of Things (IoT) platform with two families, Artik 0 and Artik 7, collaborating with Silicon Labs to add wireless modules targeting battery-powered edge nodes.
The Samsung Artik 0 module family is based on Silicon Labs’ low-power, multiprotocol Wireless Gecko system-on-chip (SoC) platform featuring an ARM Cortex-M4 processor. The Samsung Artik 020 module includes Silicon Labs’ Bluetooth low energy software stack. The Samsung Artik 030 module uses Silicon Labs’ ZigBee and Thread mesh networking stacks.
The Samsung Artik platform is an integrated chip-to-cloud solution that helps IoT developers accelerate their product development process, reduce time to market and improve total cost of ownership for their IoT products.
“As a leader in IoT connectivity technology, Silicon Labs is a valued partner for our new Samsung Artik 0 Family of modules,” said Curtis Sasaki, Vice President of Ecosystems, Samsung Strategy & Innovation Center. “Silicon Labs’ advanced wireless SoC technology with support for Bluetooth, ZigBee and Thread connectivity adds an ideal solution for the IoT edge node market and connects with other Samsung hub-optimized modules and Samsung Artik Cloud.”
According to a recent research study by 451 Group, 65 percent of enterprises are using the IoT to optimize their services and product offerings.
