The SAMA7G5 Series data sheet specifies a maximum operating junction temperature (TJ) of 105°C. This limit must be respected to ensure both correct operation and long lifetime(1) for the device. For this purpose, a thermal study should be included in the design process to verify the device operating temperature in the application and, if required, to take corrective action if this temperature is deemed too high.

  1. 1.For detailed information, refer to the “SAMA7G5 Series Product Lifetime Estimation” application note. See Reference Documents.

This document is organized in the following way:

In addition, Appendix A provides insights on Linux® operation with regards to these thermal aspects.
