The purpose of this page is to give complimentary information that really matters to developers, like sharing R&D recipes, and share knowledge and efforts to provide the best support for favorites OS.

Cloud or Modules

ARTIK is positioned to facilitate rapid IoT development, but does so with two strategies. Namely, the ARTIK brand refers to a cloud technology (software service) as well as a module technology (hardware integration.) According to the top level ARTIK website, Your IoT journey starts here. Choose one or both:

ARTIK Development

A third strategy to using the ARTIK platform, is to start from the developer portal which documents both module and cloud IoT technologies.

Samsung ARTIK Discontinuation

We regret to inform you that Samsung has decided to discontinue the ARTIK product line effective December 16th, 2018. Samsung is still highly committed to the IoT market but has determined that the ARTIK modules business will no longer continue. Samsung anticipates continuing to make current ARTIK modules available through June 2019 and assisting its current customers to minimize any disruptions that may be caused due to this discontinuance. Samsung anticipates the following modules will continue to be available until June 28, 2019: ARTIK 710, 710s, 530, 530s, 530s 1G, 520, 520s, 305s, 053, 053s, 055s, 030 and 020 Modules.

Hardware Specs and Platform Status

ARTIK is an IoT enthusiast's dream, but includes hardware circuits for which no software device drivers exist. While 802.3, 802.11, and Bluetooth (even 4.1!) logic is built into the kernel and works out of the box, 802.15.4, ZigBee, 6LoWPAN, Z-Wave, LPWA, and SigFox only work sparingly or not at all. A partially complete list of hardware features follows.

Fedora / IoT Messaging

Out of the box, ARTIK module boards include messaging brokers in their eMMC based OS. In addition to Mosquitto, it's easy to install RabbitMQ and ZeroMQ with the dnf(1) (fork of yum) package manager.

A hypothetical business work flow leading to a market viable IoT product starts with a ARTIK 5 or 10 hardware computer on which all supporting circuitry is optimized away, except for the ARTIK module itself and a subset of peripheral devices (maybe power management or non module circuitry like the Atmel 8520 chip for SigFox RF.)


The ARTIK module is a standalone circuit
