Mouser Electronics announced a global distribution agreement with Samsung to distribute the SAMSUNG ARTIK line of modules, development kits, and accessories. The SAMSUNG ARTIK Smart IoT platform is designed to help developers capitalize on easy-to-use, open and enterprise-grade APIs, SDKs, and tools to bring wearable, smart, and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to market.
The Samsung ARTIK Smart IoT platform, available now from Mouser Electronics, makes it easy to build and deploy secure, interoperable IoT products and services. The tiny, low-power, lightweight ARTIK 0 family — consisting of the ARTIK 020 and ARTIK 030 — is optimized for single-function IoT devices, such as door locks, lights, and sensors. The ARTIK 020 module integrates all of the necessary elements required for a Bluetooth low energy application, while the ARTIK 030 module enables rapid development of wireless mesh networking solutions using ZigBee or Thread protocols.
Samsung ARTIK 020 is a Bluetooth module targeted for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) applications where reliable RF, low-power consumption, and industrial-grade application development are key requirements.
The ARTIK 5 family includes the ARTIK 520 and ARTIK 530 modules. The ARTIK 520 is a highly integrated system-on-module (SoM) that uses a dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee for secure point-to-point authentication and data transfer in home automation and home hub devices.
Samsung ARTIK 030 is a fully-integrated, pre-certified module for wireless mesh networking solutions using ZigBee or Thread protocols. The module combines an energy-efficient, multi-protocol wireless SoC with proven RF/antenna design and wireless software stacks, and an industrial-grade development environment.
The ARTIK 530 offers many of the same features as the ARTIK 520 module, but at a lower cost boosts performance with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and support for Bluetooth 4.2 and Thread connectivity. For building high-end IoT gateways or multimedia applications, or for large amounts of local processing, the ARTIK 710 module offers an 8-core, 64-bit ARM Cortex A-53 processor and built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee and Thread communication.
The Samsung ARTIK modules are supported by development kits as well as accessory boards for some modules — including a camera, LCD screen, and sensor board — also available from Mouser.
“Mouser is excited to add the SAMSUNG ARTIK products to our IoT linecard,” said Jeff Newell, senior vice president of products at Mouser. “With our shared focus on prototyping within the design cycle, Mouser and Samsung can better fulfill demand for this technology around the world.”
“We are pleased that Mouser has joined our growing list of global distributors to help speed customers in their IoT development and time to market,” said John Kalkman, vice president of worldwide SAMSUNG ARTIK Platform Sales, Samsung Electronics. “Mouser’s focus on delivering the newest technologies with best-in-class service, is a win for designers as demand for IoT applications continues to grow.”
