Samsung Electronics has selected Cypress Semiconductor’s Wi-Fi system-on-chip (SoC) connectivity solution for its ARTIK Internet of Things (IoT) platform, the company has announced.
Cypress’ low-power SoC, CYW43907 802.11n to give its full name, is now in production in Samsung’s ARTIK 050 module providing secure IoT connectivity for products across vertical markets, including smart home, smart lighting, smart building, manufacturing, and health and wellness. The Samsung ARTIK 050 module is an end-to-end, integrated IoT Platform that transforms the process of developing, launching and managing connected products.
The Cypress CYW43907 SoC integrates dual-band IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi with a 320-MHz ARM Cortex-R4 RISC processor and 2 MB of SRAM to run applications and manage IoT protocols. The SoC’s power management unit simplifies power topologies and optimising energy consumption. The CYW43907 solution is supported on Cypress’ Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) Software Development Kit (SDK), which provides code examples, tools and development support.
According to James Stansberry, senior vice president of IoT Business Team at Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center (SSIC), the Cypress CYW43907 SoC’s dual-band 802.11n connectivity and processing capabilities provide the ARTIK 050 modules with excellent performance and power consumption, which helps the company to enable a strong end-user experience for its customers’ products.
Michael Hogan, vice president of the IoT business unit at Cypress, said: “Cypress has built a leadership position in IoT connectivity by partnering with our top-tier customers and suppliers to quickly turn winning ideas into the connected products the market is looking for. Samsung’s ARTIK IoT platform brings drop-in, secure Cloud applications to a wide array of smart home appliances and industrial electronics applications, making it an excellent showcase for our robust Wi-Fi solutions.”
