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 complement our development kits and software support.
