Built using a low-power 28-nm High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) process, the chip – called the Exynos i T200 – features both high processing capabilities and Wi-Fi connectivity. It is offered as “an optimum IoT solution,” designed to deliver the performance needed for upcoming IoT use cases.

According to Ben Hur, Vice President of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics, “The Exynos i T200 is an IoT solution optimized to deliver both the performance and security demanded in the IoT market. With various Exynos solution offerings, Samsung will deliver further differentiated value to not only mobile devices, but also non-mobile spaces, including automotive and IoT.”

The Exynos i T200 includes both a Cortex-R4 processor and an additional Cortex-M0+ processor, allowing the devices it supports to process and perform various tasks without the need for an extra microcontroller in the system. The chip supports 802.11b/g/n single-band (2.4GHz) and is both Wi-Fi CERTIFIED and Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT. The Exynos i T200 also natively supports IoTivity, an open IoT protocol standard designed to enable seamless interoperability between IoT devices.

Security and privacy functions are handled by a separate and designated security management hardware block. In addition, Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) IP provides secure data storage and device authentication management, avoiding the need to fuse a key onto silicon and rely on a discrete security IC for key storage, and providing a much higher level of security compared to conventional solutions, according to the company.
