Description

The MYD-SAMA5D3X Development Board is a fully-featured evaluation board for the ARM Cortex-A5 based Atmel SAMA5D3 series MPUs (Atmel SAMA5D31, SAMA5D33, SAMA5D34, SAMA5D35 and SAMA5D36) which can operate at up to 536MHz (850DMIPS) at under 150mW, delivering a high-performance, low-power platform for cost-sensitive industrial and consumer applications. It is a ready-to-run Linux and Android Cortex-A5 evaluation platform and offered with optional 4.3- and 7-inch LCD modules, USB 3G module, USB Camera module, USB WiFi module and GPS module. It can work in harsh environment supporting -40 to +85 Celsius extended temperature operation for industrial embedded applications.


The MYD-SAMA5D3X ARM board has a commonly-used base board equipped with a different MYC-SAMA5D3X CPU module. The MYC-SAMA5D3X is an ARM controller board which can be served as the core of your embedded system. It has integrated the Atmel SAMA5D3 ARM Cortex-A5 processor, 512MB DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB Nand Flash, 16MB Nor Flash, 4MB Data Flash and Gigabit Ethernet PHY and uses a DDR2 SO-DIMM 200-pin expansion connector to provides an interface for the base board to carry all the I/O signals to and from the CPU module. A set of peripherals have been brought out through headers and connectors on the MYD-SAMA5D3X base board including 2 x serial ports, 3 x USB2.0 ports, up to 2 x Ethernet, up to 2 x CAN, RS485, Audio, SDIO/SD/MMC, etc. And four of the modules SAMA5D31, SAMA5D33, SAMA5D34 and SAMA5D36 offer HDMI and LCD display support.


MYD-SAMA5D3X Development Board series have following models:

MYD-SAMA5D31 Development Board (based on Atmel SAMA5D31) using MYC-SAMA5D31 as CPU Module
MYD-SAMA5D33 Development Board (based on Atmel SAMA5D33) using MYC-SAMA5D33 as CPU Module
MYD-SAMA5D34 Development Board (based on Atmel SAMA5D34) using MYC-SAMA5D34 as CPU Module
MYD-SAMA5D35 Development Board (based on Atmel SAMA5D35) using MYC-SAMA5D35 as CPU Module

MYD-SAMA5D36 Development Board (based on Atmel SAMA5D36) using MYC-SAMA5D36 as CPU Module


Table 1-1 Comparison for Model Selection


From table 1-1, we can see if you need Gigabit Ethernet, except MYD-SAMA5D31, other four models all can support; if you need two CANs, Gigabit Ethernet but no need LCD, MYD-SAMA5D35 is a good choice; if you want to evaluate the performance of this industrial board, MYD-SAMA5D34 and MYD-SAMA5D36 has the most complete functions.


The MYD-SAMA5D3X Development Kit contains Linux 3.6.9 and android 4.0.4 software packages, necessary cable accessories as well as detailed documents to allow customers to start development soon when getting the goods out of box. It is a solid and flexible evaluation board reference design to enable users to extensively evaluate, prototype and create applications that require audio, mass storage, networking, connectivity and more. Typical applications are such as control panel/HMI, smart grid, medical and handheld terminals, smart watches, outdoor GPS, DECT (digital enhanced cordless telecommunications) phones, etc.

More FAQ >>


1. Linux file system decompress error

Question:
Hi, I bought your MYD-SAMA5D3X board, when I decompress the file system following the user manual section 4.5.6, the error appears. The log is as below: tar xvjf buildroot-at91.tar.bz2 bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file. tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors What's the problem?

Answer:

Hello, please try below ways:

1. Check the file type

# file buildroot-at91.tar.bz2

2. If it is gzip compressed package (it shows gzip compressed data" in file command), it can be decompressed using below command:

# tar xzvf buildroot-at91.tar.bz2



2. What is the optional SO-DIMM 200- pin socket used for?

Question:
What is the optional SO-DIMM 200- pin socket used for?

Answer:

The SO-DIMM 200-pin socket is optional, some customers might need it for their own base board design, or some customers who already used Atmel's official board for evaluation, but they want to use MYIR's CPU module, they need only to change to use the DDR2 SO-DIMM 200-pin socket on Atmel's official base board. As Atmel is using DDR1 SO-DIMM 200-pin socket but MYIR's modules have the same pin definition.


3. Is there any requirement on Linux development compiling environment?

Question:
What's the requirement on Linux development compiling environment? We are using fedora 14, is it ok?

Answer:
You can select fedora, redhat or ubuntu as long as the development platform can provide environment to install the cross-compiling tool. If you are not familar Linux development, we suggest you can use ubuntu which may improve your schedule.

4. Ping request could not find Host after u-boot IP setting

Question:
Hello, I could not pin the Host after I set the IP in u-boot, what's the problem?

Answer:
After burned the u-boot, please set the value for "ipaddr" and "ethaddr" two parameters, then use "saveenv" command to save the settings. Restart the board again, it can ping successfully.

5. Does the MYD-SAMA5D31 Development board @USD290 include the base board and the CPU module?

Question:
Does the MYD-SAMA5D31 Development board @USD290 include the base board and the CPU module?

Answer:
Yes, our MYD-SAMA5D3X development board includes one MYC-SAMA5D3X CPU module mounted on the base board, the unit price is USD290/unit including the base board, CPU module, cable accessories and product disk.
