Samsung begins mass production of the Exynos i T200 chip for IoT use
The IoT market has much space for growth and it seems to expand faster with each month. Samsung Electronics has just announced the start of mass production of its first Exynos chip for this market, namely the Exynos i T200.
Samsung's Exynos i T200 uses a Cortex-R4 and a Cortex-M0+ core, offering WiFi 802.11 b/g/n single-band connectivity. It has been certified by the WiFi Alliance and is also a Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT piece of hardware. At last, it provides native support for IoTivity, a standard from the Open Connectivity Foundation "which enables seamless interoperability between IoT devices."
In addition to the above, this chip also comes with a separated security management hardware block known as SSS (Security Sub-System). The Exynos i T200 also comes with the Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) IP that provides authentication management without the need to fuse a silicon key, relying on a discrete security IC for key storage.
This new chip is expected to show up in the coming months in various IoT devices, but there are no details about the first products expected to use it.
