Farnell element14 to back Atmel Xplained concept

February 15, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Farnell element14 and Atmel have launched the SAMA5D2 Xplained Ultra evaluation kit for the fast prototyping and evaluation of Atmel's SMART SAMA5D2 Series of microprocessors. 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 SAMA5D2 is suitable for point-of-sale (POS), Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial applications requiring anti-cloning, data protection and secure communication transfer. The power-efficient embedded MPU is based on the ARM Cortex-A5 processor and 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.
