SAMA5D4 Series


The SAMA5D4 MPU is ideal for any high-performance, secure, and cost-sensitive industrial application. High-speed computing needs are supported by ARM Neon and a 128kB L2 cache that increases the overall system performance. The SAMA5D4 is an ideal fit for low-cost user interface applications that require video playback. The high-grade security features allow you to protect any system against counterfeiting and software theft, while also enabling you to securely store and transfer data.


  • ARM® Cortex®-A5 running at 600Mhz (945DMIPS).
  • ARM Neon for high-precision computing and acceleration of complex algorithms including multimedia.
  • 128KB of L2 cache for system performance.
  • 720p hardware video decoder supporting H264/263, VP8, JPEG.
