SAMA5D3 Series


Operating at 850DMIPS at under 150mW, the SAMA5D3 MPU is ideal for any high-performance, low-power and cost-sensitive industrial application. Think of it for control panels, smart grid devices and bar code scanners—anything that needs high levels of connectivity, enhanced user interfaces, robust security or is battery powered. The SAMA5D3 is also an ideal fit for wearable computing and mobile applications where low power and a small footprint are critical. The SAMA5D3 series includes devices supporting a -40/+105°C temperature range as well as 12x12mm BGA324 package (in 0.5mm pitch).


  • ARM® Cortex®-A5 core running at 536MHz (850DMIPS).
