Status: In Production
The SAMA5D3 series is a high-performance, ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-A5 processor-based MPU. The Cortex-A5 runs up to 536MHz and features a 128KB L2 cache and a floating-point unit. It supports multiple memories, including DDR2 and LPDDR2. It integrates powerful peripherals for connectivity: Gigabit EMAC and/or 10/100 EMAC, 3 HS USB ports, up to 2 CAN ports, up to 3 SDIO/SD/MMC, up to 7 UARTs; and for user interface applications: TFT LCD controller, touch controller, and a CMOS sensor (camera) interface. These devices offer application security functions to protect against hacking such as a hardware encryption engine supporting AES, 3DES, as well as secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) and True Random Number Generator (TRNG) and a secure boot loader. These devices come with a free main-lined Linux distribution.

These software packages deliver a set of C drivers that run on the evaluation kits and exercise all peripherals. They are also very useful for board bring up as well as quick prototyping. They consist of drivers, software services and libraries.
Each software module for a Microchip MPU includes full source code, application examples, rich HTML documentation and ready-to-use projects for...
This is the evaluation board for the KSZ9477S 7-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (also KSZ9567 and KSZ8567). The SAMA5D3 processor manages the switch and includes the ATECC508A security encoder. The DSC1101 is the reference clock for GigE communication. The EVB can be used to implement IEEE 1588v2, AVB and DLR/HSR (available on KSZ9477 only) network redundancy. Combine multiple boards to implement...
The SAMA5D3 Xplained is a fast prototyping and evaluation platform for microprocessor-based design. The board comes with a rich set of ready to use connectivity and storage peripherals and expansion headers for easy customization. A Linux distribution and software package gets you evaluating fast. A USB device connector can be used to power the board as well as programming and debugging it.
SAM-BA software provides an open set of tools for in-system programming of internal and external memories connected to our 32-MCUs and MPUs. You can program your device through the JTAG, debug UART or USB interfaces.
For MCUs and legacy MPUs the latest versions of SAM-BA v2 can be downloaded from the documents tab.
With the SAM-BA monitor residing in on-chip non-volatile...
