SAMA5
ARM® Cortex-A5-based MPUs

The SAMA5 series are high-performance, ultra-low power ARM Cortex®-A5 core based MPU devices. They support multiple memories, including DDR3, LPDDR3, and QSPI Flash.  A rich set of peripherals, user interfaces, and robust security features simplify the design for control panels/HMI, secure IoT gateways, connectivity, barcode scanners, printers and POS terminal applications.  The low-power features and small packages are ideal for wearables and other battery-operated consumer devices.  A wide range of third-party offerings complements our development kits and software support.
