The Atmel SMART SAMA5D3 series of microprocessor units, based on the ARM Cortex-A5 processor, operates at up to 536MHz at under 150mW, delivering a high-performance, low-power platform for cost-sensitive industrial and consumer applications.
The SAMA5D3 series is ideal for applications requiring high-precision computing and fast data processing. Based on the ARM Cortex-A5 processor with floating point unit, it features a 64-bit internal bus architecture and 32-bit wide DDR controller running up to 166MHz that offers up to 1328MB/s of bandwidth.
The SAMA5D3 series consumes less than 150mW when running at maximum speed and under 0.5mW in low-power mode, making it ideal for battery-powered applications.
The peripheral set Includes Gigabit and 10/100 Ethernet, up to three HS USB ports, dual CAN, three SDIO/SD/MMC, UARTs, SPIs, TWIs, soft modem, LCD controller with graphics accelerator, camera interface, 12-bit ADC, 32-bit timers and more.
State-of-the-art security features include secure boot, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)/Triple Data Encryption Standard (DES) encryption engine, Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) and True Random Number Generator (TRNG).
The 0.8mm ball pitch package reduces the PCB design complexity. A simple power management scheme and impedance matching on DDR lines reduce the need for external components. Three USB ports save the cost of an external USB hub.
