Samsung presents the Artik line of IoT processors

The Korean tech giant Samsung has quietly presented a new family of processors designed for the ever growing Internet of Things (IoT). The family is called Artik and includes three chips with very low power consumption.

We’ll describe the Artik family with a few words here – first we have the Samsung Artik 1 processor, which is the smallest and slowest of the three. It is designed for use with low-power compact devices. Then we have the Artik 5, which includes two processing cores at 1 GHz, DRAM and flash memory. The chip is designed for home-based multimedia centers, drones and high-end portable devices and offers the perfect balance between performance and cost. Finally we have the Artik 10, which is an 8-core processor at 1.3 GHz. The Artik 10 includes 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory and supports video decoding, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Unfortunately there’s no information on when and how we will see the Artik chips in action. The Internet of Things market is said to grow exponentially, though, so it should not take long to see Artik around you.
