Samsung Intros Exynos i T100 for
May 9, 2019
The new solution integrates processor and memory in a single
chip with Bluetooth Low Energy and Zigbee protocol support
Samsung Electronics, a world leader
in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced a new Internet of
Things (IoT) solution, the Exynos i T100, which enhances the security
and reliability of devices designed for short-range communications.
Along with the previously introduced Exynos i T200 for Wi-Fi and Exynos
i S111 for long-range narrow-band (NB) communications, the launch of the
Exynos i T100 allows the company to cover a wider gamut of connectivity
for today’s IoT devices.
Based on a power-efficient
28-nanometer (nm) process technology, the Exynos i T100 is optimized to
be used with short-range IoT devices that automate and control
environments within homes or businesses. The vast array of applications
for such devices would include smart lighting, home security and
monitoring, temperature control, fire and gas detectors, and fitness
“Low-power short-range IoT solutions that connect various products in
our homes or buildings can make our lives easier and safer,” said Ben
Hur, senior vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung
Electronics. “The Exynos i T100, engineered with multiple communication
protocols along with strong security capabilities, will help further
extend IoT services in areas where they could benefit our everyday
Exynos i T100 supports popular short-range communication protocols,
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 and Zigbee 3.0, and also integrates the
processor with memory in a small single-chip package, all to enhance
flexibility in the product development process of device manufacturers.
Strong security features that protect against potential hacking and
other threats is a must when it comes to wireless IoT devices that
automate and control their environment. The Exynos i T100 comes with a
separate Security Sub-System (SSS) hardware block for data encryption
and a Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) that creates a unique identity
for each chipset.
This new IoT solution also adds to reliability in that it can endure
extreme temperatures as low as -40°C and up to 125°C.
The Exynos i T100 is currently sampling.
