Express Logic, Inc.IAR Systems

The Express Logic ThreadX® RTOS supports SAMA5D3 eMPUs for developers with applications that can benefit from an RTOS. ThreadX also supports the full range of Atmel AVR® and ARM processors including the ARM7™, ARM9™, ARM Cortex-M3, ARM Cortex-M4, and ARM Cortex-A5. For many of these processors, support also includes the NetX TCP/IP stack, FileX file system, USBX USB Host/Device/OTG stack, and PegX, GUI development toolkit. The TraceX event analysis tool is also available for all supported processors, and it works with a variety of IDE tools, including Atmel Studio 6, IAR's Embedded Workbench for ARM (EWARM), ARM RealView, Keil u-Vision, and GNU.

IAR Systems is the world's leading independent vendor of development tools for embedded systems. The highly optimizing C/C++ compiler and debugger tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench is available for all Atmel microcontrollers and microprocessors including the SAMA5D3 ARM Cortex-A5 based devices. IAR Systems also provides a range of integrated in-circuit debugging probes and starter kits, and the graphical state machine design tool IAR visualSTATE.

IAR Systems is headquartered in Sweden, and has sales and support offices in the US, Japan, Korea, China, Germany, France, and the UK, and distributors in 25 additional countries.


eForce, Co., Ltd, founded in 2006, focuses on embedded system software for ARM processors. eForce develops and sells uITRON4.0 based RTOS (uC3) and original TCP/IP stacks (uNet3).

The uC3 has two types of RTOS:

  • uC3/Compact, which is a very small kernel footprint RTOS(minimum 2.4KB) for microcontrollers
  • uC3/Standard, which is compatible with ITRON4.0 standard profile for microprocessors

eForce also offers the uC3 for multi-core solutions, safety solutions (memory-protected products) and compact SSL networking solutions. All the software packages are developed in-house and from scratch. In addition, our support policy is to provide a first response within one business day. eForce is dedicated to supporting your opportunities.

Embest presents the new MBC-SAMA5 CPU core board based on the SAMA5D3 eMPUs. Operating at 536MHz, the module supports Linux distributions—including Angstrom and Android—while also featuring 512MB DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB NAND Flash, 16MB NOR Flash, 4MB DataFlash® and one-wire EEPROM.

The MBC-SAMA5 reduces your development time, allowing you to bring extremely low-power, cost-effective, Internet-enabled products to market faster. Easily migrate from ARM926EJ-S™ and ARM1176JZ-S™ based processors to discover the capabilities and compatibility of ARM Cortex-A5 based devices with this cost-effective solution.


The new SAMA5D3 eMPU system-on-module (SoM) by RONETIX integrates the Atmel SAMA5D33/SAMA5D35 processors. The module is equipped with 512MB DDR2, 256MB NAND Flash, 16MB NOR Flash, 4MB Serial Flash and Gigabit Ethernet PHY.

The compact form factor SODIMM200—measuring just 67x40mm—enables easy implementation in a wide range of applications.

RONETIX is an Austrian company that produces and develops high-quality development tools to fit our customer’s unique needs and provide service and support before, during and after the sale.

The AT-501 is an industrial embedded SoM based on the SAMA5D3 ARM Cortex-A5 based eMPU. It takes advantage of the most power-efficient core to date and runs at 536MHz. It is designed as a ready-to-use controller building block for applications such as medical devices, industrial machines and battery-powered devices.

The system features a FPU and a comprehensive peripheral set, including LCD controller, touchscreen and extensive connectivity peripherals such as GE, multiple CAN, UART, SPI and I2C. It is equipped with a comprehensive software suite, including the Debian Linux OS.

ShiraTech develops and sells ARM-based SoMs, including Atmel ARM9™, Cortex-A and Cortex-M based devices. ShiraTech also offers complete development and integration services.


Conexant has its roots in modem technology with over five decades of experience. Conexant pioneered the soft modem back in the 1990s and its chips and technology have enabled more dialup modem shipments than any other company. Integrating its proprietary interface (SSD) into the Atmel SAM9 and SAMA5 MCUs allows for an easy interface to Conexant's CX20548 SmartDAA, Conexant is able to bring very cost-effective and reliable dial-up communications capabilities to this powerful family of MCUs.
