Samsung intros the Exynos i T100 single-chip IoT solution
Samsung's Exynos i T200 for WiFi and Exynos i S111 for long-range narrow-band communications IoT solutions have just received a new companion. The Exynos i T100 is a single-chip solution that enhances the security and reliability of devices built for short-range communications.
According to the official press release, "the Exynos i T100 is optimized to be used with short-range IoT devices that automate and control environments within homes or businesses." The list of applications that can take advantage of this chip's capabilities includes home security and monitoring, smart lighting, temperature control, fire and gas detectors, as well as fitness wearables.
The Samsung Exynos i T100 can handle extreme temperatures (-40 to 125 Celsius) and supports Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 and Zigbee 3.0. Built on a power-efficient 28 nm process technology, this single-chip solution sports a separate hardware block for data encryption and a Physical Unclonable Function that provides a unique identity for each unit.
The Exynos i T100 is currently sampling and the first products to use it will probably hit the market later this year.
