Status: In Production
The SAMA5D4 series is a high-performance, ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-A5 processor-based MPU. The Cortex-A5 runs up to 600MHz and features the ARM NEON SIMD engine, a 128KB L2 cache and a floating-point unit. It supports multiple memories, including DDR2 and LPDDR2. It integrates powerful peripherals for connectivity: dual 10/100 EMACs, 3 HS USB ports, 2 SDIO/SD/MMC, 8 UARTs; and for user interface applications: TFT LCD controller, touch controller, 720p hardware video decoder (H264, VP8, MPEG4), and a CMOS sensor (camera) interface. These devices offer advanced security functions to protect customer code and secure external data transfers such as: ARM TrustZone, tamper detection pins, a hardware encryption engine supporting AES, 3DES, as well as secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) and True Random Number Generator (TRNG), secure data storage for private keys, on-the-fly decryption of code stored in external DDR and a secure boot loader. These devices come with a free main-lined Linux distribution.

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. If you use the MPU’s secure boot feature, you should use the Secure SAM-BA edition.
The latest generations of MPUs are supported on SAM-BA v3 available on the...
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...
