Evaluation kit enables fast prototyping

The SAMA5D2 Xplained Ultra evaluation kit, a high-performance, fast prototyping and evaluation platform for the Atmel SMART SAMA5D2 Series of microprocessors is available at Farnell element14. The board offers multiple memories including eMMC, DDR3 and QSPI as well as a comprehensive set of connectivity options.

With its secure design architecture, cryptographic acceleration engines, and secure boot loader, the kit is the ideal solution for point-of-sale (POS), Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial applications requiring anti-cloning, data protection and secure communication transfer.

The Atmel SMART SAMA5D2 Series is a high-performance, power-efficient embedded MPU based on the ARM Cortex-A5 processor. The device features an advanced user interface and connectivity peripherals.

Advanced security is provided by powerful cryptographic accelerators, by the ARM TrustZone technology securing access to memories and sensitive peripherals, and by several hardware features that safeguard memory content, authenticate software reliability, detect physical attacks and prevent information leakage during code execution.

Connectivity peripherals include a 10/100 EMAC, USBs, CAN-FDs, FLEXCOMs, UARTs, SPIs and two QSPIs, SDIO/SD/e.MMCs, and TWIs/I2 C.

SAMA5D2 devices feature three software-selectable low-power modes: Sleep, Wait and Backup. It also includes an Event System that allows peripherals to receive, react to and send events in Active and Sleep modes without processor intervention. The Xplained series can be accessorised with add-on boards to add more features and functionality including Wi-Fi, touchscreen display, sensing, ADC, Bluetooth, GPS or GSM/ GPRS to a design.
