MPU prototyping board up for grabs
12 September 2018, News

Microchip Technology and Dataweek are offering readers a chance to win a Microchip SAMA5D2 Xplained Ultra board – a fast prototyping and evaluation platform for the SAMA5D2 series of MPUs (microprocessor units).

The SAMA5D2 series is a high-performance, ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-A5 processor based MPU. The Cortex A5 processor runs up to 500 MHz and features the ARM NEON SIMD engine, a 128 KB L2 cache and a floating point unit. It supports multiple memories, including latest-generation technologies such as DDR3, LPDDR3 and QSPI Flash.

SAMA5D2 devices integrate powerful peripherals for connectivity (EMAC, USB, dual CAN, up to 10 UARTs, and more) and user interface applications (TFT LCD controller, PCAP and resistive touch controllers, touch controller, class D amplifier, audio PLL, CMOS sensor interface, etc.). The devices offer advanced security functions to protect customer code and secure external data transfers. These include ARM TrustZone, tamper detection, secure data storage, hardware encryption engine, on-the-fly decryption of code stored in external DDR or QSPI memory, and a secure boot loader.

The SAMA5D2 Xplained Ultra board (ATSAMA5D2C-XULT) allows users to extensively evaluate, prototype and create application-specific designs. The board includes eMMC and DDR3 memories as well as a rich set of connectivity options.

A Linux distribution and software package allows users to easily get started with their development, and connectors and expansion headers allows for easy customisation and quick access to leading-edge embedded features such as the Class D amplifier or the capacitive touch controller (PTC).

For your chance to win a Microchip SAMA5D2 Xplained Ultra board, visit http://page.microchip.com/datweek-sama5d2.html and enter your details in the online entry form.
