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.
