Microchip SAMA5D2 ARM Cortex-A5 Microprocessors

"The Microchip's SAMA5D2 series is a high-performance, ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-A5 processor-based MPU. The Cortex-A5 runs up to 500MHz and features the ARM NEON SIMD engine a 128kB L2 cache and a floating point unit. Supports multiple memories, including latest generation such as DDR3, LPDDR3, QSPI Flash. Integrates powerful peripherals for connectivity (EMAC, USB, dual CAN, up to 10 UARTs) and user interface applications (TFT LCD controller, touch controller, class D amplifier integrated, digital audio microphone, CMOS sensor interface). The devices offer advanced security functions to protect customer code and secure external data transfers such as, ARM TrustZone, tamper detection, secure data storage, hardware encryption engines, including private keys, on-the-fly decryption of code stored in external DDR or QSPI memory and a secure boot loader. The devices comes with a free Microchip Linux distribution".
