    • Evaluation Board for AT91SAM9260


    The Atmel's AT91SAM9260-EK evaluation kit enables the evaluation of and code development for applications running on 32-bit ARM® Thumb® based AT91SAM9260 device. The board supports the AT91SAM9260 in an LFBGA217 package as well as in a PQFP208 package.

    The SAM9260 is a 210MHz ARM926-based processor with an extensive range of communication peripherals. It embeds FS USB host and device interfaces, a 10/100 Ethernet MAC and an image sensor interface, as well as standard peripherals such as a Multimedia Card Interface (MCI), I2S, USARTs, master/slave SPIs, 16-bit Timers, a TWI and four-channel 10-bit ADC. The external bus interface features controllers for SDRAM and static memories including NAND flash and CompactFlash.

    The SAM9260 is based on the integration of an ARM926EJ-S ARM Thumb processor with 8 KBytes Data Cache, 8 KBytes Instruction Cache, MMU, with memories such as 32-bit External Bus Interface supporting 4-bank SDRAM/LPSDR, Static Memories, CompactFlash, SLC NAND Flash with ECC, two 4-kbyte internal SRAM, single-cycle access at system speed, one 32-kbyte internal ROM, embedding bootstrap routine and a wide range of peripherals.

    The SAM9260 embeds an 10/100 Mbps Ethernet MAC Controller, one USB Device Port, and a USB Host controller. It also integrates several standard peripherals, such as four USARTs, two UARTs, two Master/Slave serial peripheral interfaces, one two-wire Interface, two three-channel 32-bit Timer/Counters, synchronous serial controller, 4-channel 10-bit ADC and MultiMedia Card Interface.

    The SAM9260 is architectured on a 6-layer matrix, allowing a maximum internal bandwidth of six 32-bit buses. It also features an External Bus Interface capable of interfacing with a wide range of memory devices.

    Key Applications: Building Automation (Comfort and Control, Fire and Security, Telecare), Home Entertainment(Audio).
