New IoT Solution Enhances Security and Reliability of Short-Range Devices

Samsung Electronics has unveiled a new IoT solution that enhances security and reliability of devices designed for short-range communications. Along with the previously introduced Exynos i T200 for Wi-Fi and Exynos i S111 for long-range narrow-band (NB) communications, the launch of the new Exynos i T100 allows the company to cover a wider gamut of connectivity for today’s IoT devices.

Based on a power-efficient 28nm process technology, the Exynos i T100 is optimized to be used with short-range IoT devices that automate and control environments within homes or businesses. The vast array of applications for such devices would include smart lighting, home security and monitoring, temperature control, fire and gas detectors, and fitness wearables.

The Exynos i T100 supports popular short-range communication protocols, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 and Zigbee 3.0, and also integrates the processor with memory in a small single-chip package, all to enhance flexibility in the product development process of device manufacturers.

Low-power short-range IoT solutions that connect various products in homes or buildings will make lives easier and safer in the future. The Exynos i T100, engineered with multiple communication protocols along with strong security capabilities, thus will help further extend IoT services in areas where they could benefit everyday lives.

Strong security features that protect against potential hacking and other threats are a must when it comes to wireless IoT devices that automate and control their environment. The Exynos i T100 comes with a separate Security Sub-System (SSS) hardware block for data encryption and a Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) that creates a unique identity for each chipset. It also adds to reliability in that it can endure extreme temperatures as low as -40°C and up to 125°C.
