Samsung's IoT module taps SiLabs' Gecko technology

By Nick Flaherty

Samsung has teamed up with Silicon Labs on wireless modules targeting battery-powered edge nodes for the Internet of Things (IoT). 

The new SAMSUNG ARTIK family is based on Silicon Labs’ low-power, multiprotocol Wireless Gecko system-on-chip (SoC) platform based around the ARM Cortex-M4 processor core. 
The SAMSUNG ARTIK 020 module includes Silicon Labs’ Bluetooth low energy software stack, and the SAMSUNG ARTIK 030 module uses Silicon Labs’ ZigBee and Thread mesh networking stacks. The small-footprint modules (13 mm x 15 mm) are ideal for space-constrained applications and integrate all essential components including the antenna to simplify the RF design process.

The SAMSUNG ARTIK platform is a fully 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. The platform provides security from device to hub to cloud to data management.

“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-optimised modules and SAMSUNG ARTIK Cloud.”

The SAMSUNG ARTIK platform provides the essential hardware, software, tools and SAMSUNG ARTIK Cloud building blocks for development of new enterprise, industrial and consumer applications. Developers can focus their expertise on designing new applications and services rather than building entire systems from the ground up, enabling faster time-to-market.

"Silicon Labs is delighted to collaborate with Samsung in developing new, best-in-class wireless modules, enabling developers to accelerate delivery of secure, interoperable and intelligent IoT products and services," said Dennis Natale, Vice President of IoT Business Development at Silicon Labs. "As Samsung's first certified partner for the SAMSUNG ARTIK module, we are impressed by the strength of the rapidly growing partner ecosystem for the SAMSUNG ARTIK platform and excited about the opportunity ahead. We look forward to helping Samsung deliver on its vision of providing a robust, horizontal IoT platform that includes all of the hardware, software, security and cloud-based technology necessary to meet the needs of diverse customers."
