SAMA5D3 Xplained Board

The SAMA5D3 Xplained Board is a fully-featured evaluation platform for SAMA5D3 series microcontrollers. It allows you to extensively evaluate, prototype and create application-specific designs. It is built around the integration of a Cortex®-A5-based microcontroller (BGA 324package) with external memory, dual Ethernet® physical layer transceiver, two SD/MMC interfaces, two Host USB ports, one Device USB port, one 24-bit RGB LCD interface, and one debug interface. Seven headers, compatible with Arduino R3, are available for various shield connections.
