Samsung has high hopes for the IoT (Internet of Things) and the interoperability that will provide in the future between “smart” devices of any type, from smartphones/tablets/wearables to refrigerators, air conditions, smart cars, drones etc. That’s why the company is getting ready to expand and announced recently that has began mass production of the Exynos i T200, a vital SoC that will be used extensively for the Internet of Things.
This new type of chipset is an upgrade from the Samsung Artik platform, launched back in 2015, built on a 28-nanometer High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) process and features Wi-Fi connectivity. It uses a Cortex-R4 processor and an Cortex-M0+ co-processor, enabling devices to operate without the need for an extra controller, along with extensive security management hardware block, to secure future intrusion issues to all connected devices.
We can expect to see the specific Exynos SoC in “smart” connected devices by the end of this year and during the first months of 2018.
