Samsung Ready to Fuel the Era of Internet of Things

SAN FRANCISCO—South Korean electronic giant Samsung proclaims its ambition to fuel the Internet of Things era. In a media briefing recently in San Francisco, Samsung showcased its latest innovations and inputs into the fields of mobile solutions, home entertainment, and IT infrastructure. 

The world has entered an Internet of Things era. As Jim Elliott, vice president of Memory Marketing and Product Planning at Samsung Semiconductor, said in 2012, the number of connected devices is more than the number of people in the world. The driving force of the electronic industry has evolved from desktop computers to mobile devices to the Internet of Things. 

Elliott also pointed out that the number of videos uploaded to YouTube in a month is more than all the programs produced by major TV networks in the past 60 years. 

Mike Williams, vice president of Memory Product Planning at Samsung, said the development of the Internet of Things is making memory devices appear in all kinds of mobile devices and in all kinds of areas. He said: “Data-gravitated applications, or even just 2K and 4K displays, all elevate the requirement of memory devices.” 

Samsung reveals its confidence in leading the era of the Internet of Things in its innovation of mobile devices, IT infrastructure, and entertainment. These are vital elements of the Internet of Things.

It also brought out its latest products, such as OLED display, SSD, DRAM, and foundry services, to show its capability in fueling the Internet of Things.

Samsung Foundry showed its most advanced 14nm FinFET process solution, which supports the design and production of system-on-a-chip. This allows it to integrate an entire electronic system onto one chip, which can be broadly applied in hardware design. 

In the memory section, the latest PowerEdge R920 server by Dell was featured because it is using Samsung’s latest 1.6 TB NVMe solid state drive. It can decrease response time and increase performance of a server catering to big data applications. It can also greatly support the Internet of Things.
