Young Sohn, president and chief strategy officer of Samsung Electronics, took the wraps off Artik, new chip technology for Internet-connected devices. Samsung wants to sell the digital brains that will go into billions of “smart” home appliances, industrial sensors and other Internet-connected gadgets — even if the gadgets aren’t made by Samsung. The new Artik components are key to Samsung’s goal of becoming a major player in the so-called “Internet of Things,” the tech industry’s buzzword for the notion that all kinds of electronic devices can be connected over the Internet.

 

 

  • SAN FRANCISCO—Samsung Electronics Co. unveiled a set of technologies to spur more companies to add computing power to everyday devices such as fitness trackers, light bulbs, security cameras and drones.
  • The effort, called Artik, centers on tiny circuit boards that come packed with new processors, communication chips, sensors and other components.
  • At a technology conference Tuesday in San Francisco, the South Korean company unveiled a new line of tiny electronic components that combine low-power computer chips, transmitters and software.
