The “Standard Boot Strategies” section of the SAMA5D3 Series Datasheet provides details about the boot sequence configuration, and should be read in conjunction with this documentation.
The hardware platform documentation should be read in conjunction with this generic SAMA5D3 CPU documentation with regards to specific jumper settings that may affect the bootstrap code executed.
For some designs directly booting from an
