[Video] Samsung Launch ARTIK, the Internet of Things (IoT) Platform


Welcome to Artik, the IoT Platform

Samsung made quite an Impact at IoT World 2015 as the company unveiled its new Artik platform that enables faster, simpler development of new enterprise, industrial and consumer applications for the Internet of Things (IoT), expanding the opportunities that are open to developers and businesses alike. The Initial members of the Artik family consists of the Artik 1, Artik 5 and Artik 10 development boards.

“We are providing the industry’s most advanced, open and secure platform for developing IoT products”, said Young Sohn, president and chief strategy officer, Samsung Electronics. “By leveraging Samsung’s high-volume manufacturing, advanced silicon process and packaging technologies, and extensive ecosystem, ARTIK allows developers to rapidly turn great ideas into market leading IoT products and applications.”


Initial members of the ARTIK family

Artik 1 is a tiny board at 12mm by 12mm with Bluetooth / BLE connectivity and is ideal for small form-factor IoT applications, were size and power consumption are issues. Artik 5 is more for home hubs, drones and high-end wearables. Artik 10 is the top spec’ed unit offering an Octa-core processor with full 1080p video decoding/encoding, 5.1 audio and 2GB DRAM along with 16GB flash memory.
This platform follows on from promises made at CES 2015 as being an Open platform, which will enable rapid deployment of IoT devices and delivery of associated services.
