SAMA5 Arm® Cortex®-A5 Based MPUs

Microchip’s SAMA5 high-performance, ultra-low power Arm Cortex-A5 core based microprocessors (MPUs) support multiple memories, including DDR3, LPDDR3 and QSPI Flash. A rich set of peripherals, user interfaces and robust security features simplify the design for control panels/HMI, secure IoT gateways, connectivity, barcode scanners, printers and POS terminal applications.

The low-power features and small packages are ideal for wearables and other battery-operated consumer devices. A wide range of third-party offerings complements our development kits and software support.
