Key Features

  • High-performance architecture — Based on the ARM Cortex-A5 core with floating-point unit, the SAMA5D3 series is ideal for applications requiring high-precision computing and fast data processing. Features a 64-bit internal bus architecture and 32-bit wide DDR controller running up to 166MHz that offers up to 1328MB/s of bandwidth
  • Market-leading low power consumption — Ideal for battery-operated applications, the SAMA5D3 series consumes less than 150mW when running at maximum speed and under 0.5mW in low-power mode
  • Comprehensive peripheral set for connectivity and user interface applications — Includes Gigabit and 10/100 Ethernet, up to three HS USB ports, dual CAN, three SDIO/SD/MMC, UARTs, SPIs, TWIs, soft modem, LCD controller with graphics accelerator, camera interface, 12-bit ADC, 32-bit timers and more
  • State-of-the-art security — Includes secure boot, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)/Triple Data Encryption Standard (DES) encryption engine, Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) and True Random Number Generator (TRNG)
  • Low system cost — The 0.8mm ball pitch package reduces the PCB design complexity. A simple power management scheme and impedance matching on DDR lines reduce the need for external components. Three USB ports save the cost of an external USB hub.
  • Extensive ecosystem — Delivered with free Atmel Linux® and Android™ ports and Qt SDK, as well as a complete set of C examples for non-OS users. This offer is completed by multiple software and hardware partners.
