SAMSUNG ARTIK Modules Based on Silicon Labs Wireless Gecko Technology

Silicon Labs has announced its collaboration with Samsung Electronics to deliver new wireless modules targeting battery-powered edge nodes for the Internet of Things (IoT). The ARTIK platform by Samsung, 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. Additionally, this platform provides world-class security from device to hub to cloud to data management.

The new 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, 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.

ARTIK 020 is a Bluetooth Module targeted for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) applications where reliable RF, low-power consumption, and easy application development are key requirements.

ARTIK 030 is a fully-integrated, pre-certified module for wireless mesh networking solutions using ZigBee or Thread protocols. It combines an energy-efficient, multi- protocol wireless SoC with proven RF/antenna design and wireless software stacks.

The 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.
