Samsung Electronics has made its ARTIK IoT platform commercially available and also introduced a new Certified ARTIK Partner Program (CAPP) to help accelerate the development for Internet of Things (IoT) projects. SAMSUNG ARTIK development kits can be ordered from Samsung's channel partner Digi-Key Electronics starting February 22.
ARTIK is a family of modules (ARTIK 1, ARTIK 5, and ARTIK 10) tailored for the Internet of Things (IoT). It is designed for a variety of applications, from low-end wearables to powerful hubs with local processing and analytics. The security solution includes a hardware Secure Element (SE), with machine learning for anomaly detection, and a software Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).
ARTIK 1 has the world's smallest form factor (12mm x 12mm) in its class and provides performance in a portable environment. ARTIK 5 uses Samsung ePoP packaging technology to offer a combination of computing power and storage capacity. With an ARM Octa-core processor, ARTIK 10 can power a smartphone or a media hub.

Samsung's new Certified ARTIK Partner Program is designed to help developers and companies jump start their development and take their ideas to market by working with service providers and design houses. For a list of Certified Partners, visit http://www.artik.io/partners.
SAMSUNG ARTIK's support for operating systems include Tizen, Nucleus Real Time OS and the open source Fedora Linux stack. The newest member to join the ecosystem is Canonical's Operating System for the Internet of Things: Snappy Ubuntu Core, providing an OS for secure, resource-constrained smart devices.
SAMSUNG ARTIK offers a range of tools and services for both experienced developers and newcomers to IoT. For example, support for the Arduino web-based development environment popular with makers; and Temboo, which enables cloud connectivity and automatic code generation. For developers focused on local processing and analytics, Medium One's workflow tools provide analytics and visualization running locally on SAMSUNG New services include Sensory's speaker-independent on-device TrulyHandsfree Voice Control technology; Soundhound's new contextual natural language and voice recognition engine; and Vayyar's 3D imaging sensor technology.
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.
SAMSUNG ARTIK is enabling TEE support (Trusted Execution Environment) with Trustonic - the same technology that protects over 70 enterprise and payment apps in 500 million smartphones. Using hardware isolation, the TEE ensures secure storage and processing of private data. It also allows users and trusted services to safely install and run new applications on SAMSUNG ARTIK enabled devices and sensors in the field.
The SAMSUNG ARTIK team will be at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona.
