Atmel® SAMA5D3
ARM® Cortex®-A5 based MPUs

The Next Benchmark in Versatility

Atmel SAMA5D3

Atmel ARM® Cortex®-A5 processor-based MPUs deliver balance in a rich set of devices to meet your every industrial design need. The SAMA5D3 series is also ideal for wearable computing and mobile applications where low power and a small footprint are critical. By designing with the new Atmel® SAMA5D3 series, designers can alleviate any trade-offs in performance, power, and ease of use.

Operating at 850DMIPS at under 150mW, the SAMA5D3 MPU is ideal for any high-performance, low power, cost-sensitive industrial application. Think control panels, smart grid devices and bar code scanners—anything that needs high levels of connectivity, enhanced user interfaces, robust security, or is battery powered.

Key Advantages

  • High Performance - Based on the ARM Cortex-A5 core with floating-point unit, the SAMA5D3 series is ideal for applications requiring high-precision computing and fast data processing. 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
  • Low Power Consumption - Ideal for battery-operated applications, the SAMA5D3 series consumes less than 150mW when running at maximum speed and under 0.5mW in low-power mode
  • Connectivity and Enhanced User Interfaces - 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
  • Security - Includes secure boot, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)/Triple Dat Encryption Standard (DES) encryption engine, Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) and True Random Number Generator (TRNG)
  • Extensive ecosystem - Delivered with free Atmel Linux® and Android™ ports and Qt SDK, as well as a complete set of C examples for non-OS users. Multiple software and hardware partners complete this offer.
  • Low System Cost - 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.
