Samsung IoT Platform ARTIK Released

Korean electronics maker Samsung steps up IoT efforts.

Samsung Electronics announced the Samsung ARTIK IoT platform is commercially available. Samsung ARTIK development kits can be ordered from Samsung’s channel partner Digi-Key Electronics starting February 22.

The company also introduced a new Certified ARTIK Partner Program (CAPP) to make partner services and platforms readily available to help accelerate the development and time-to-market for IoT projects.

“I’m very proud of the Samsung ARTIK team and the strong momentum they have achieved. In less than 8 months, we’ve gone from product launch to commercial availability, while building multiple modules, operating systems, embedded security, and a growing ecosystem of actively engaged partners,” said Dr. Byungse So, Executive Vice President and CTO, Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center. “We believe in the power of open platforms and partner ecosystems, leveraging the wealth of expertise and experience available in the market to bring delightful experiences to our customers. We’re excited to see all the innovative projects that developers will come up with in the future.”

The open Samsung ARTIK platform provides all the essential hardware and software building blocks to allow faster, simpler development of new enterprise, industrial and consumer applications. This allows developers to focus on their areas of expertise in designing new applications and services rather than having to build entire systems from the ground up, enabling a faster time-to-market.

Microsoft has certified Samsung ARTIK compatibility with the Azure IoT Suite and IoT Hub. Developers using Samsung ARTIK modules with the Fedora operating system can get to work quickly and take advantage of the Azure Platform SDKs to create end-to-end implementations of common IoT scenarios. Together with Samsung SAMIIO, the Open Data Exchange platform that makes it easy to collect and share data from any device and in any format, developers now have more tools to build innovative cloud-based apps and services for IoT.

More information about the Samsung ARTIK platform and development tools are available here. The Samsung ARTIK team will also be at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona.
