Evaluation platform for the SAMA5D2 MRL-B ARM® Cortex®-A5 based MPU

The Microchip SAMA5D2 MPU delivers the world’s lowest power consumption for all MPUs in its class. This MPU offers with just the right price-to-performance ratio for applications requiring an entry-level MPU and extended industrial temperature range (-40 to 105°C ambient temperature).

The SAMA5D2B Xplained Ultra is a fast prototyping and evaluation platform for the Atmel SMART SAMA5D2 series of microprocessors.

The board includes eMMC and DDR3 memories as well as a rich set of connectivity options. Connectors and expansion headers allows for easy customization and quick access to leading-edge embedded features such as the ClassD amplifier or the capacitive touch controller. An Atmel Linux distribution and software package allows you to easily get started with your development.
