BLE module suits advanced IoT designs
The PAN1760A Series RF module from Panasonic are in stock at Mouser Electronics. The low-power Bluetooth low energy module offers years of operation using only a CR2032 battery for simple and reliable Internet of Things (IoT) designs.
The module is a fully autonomous device based on a Toshiba TC35678 system-on-chip (SoC) with an Arm Cortex-M0 core and embedded Toshiba Bluetooth 4.2 low energy stack.
With integrated 256Kbytes of flash and 83Kbytes of RAM for application code storage and execution, it is suited for stand-alone operation in many applications without the need for an external processor, which helps save cost, complexity, and space.
The module features excellent Bluetooth low energy functionalities — including mesh, extended Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU), and low energy secure connections — along with comprehensive GATT service and profiles.
It offers I2C, SPI, and two UART interfaces and four PWM outputs, plus five external and one internal analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).
The module is also software- and hardware-compatible with the PAN1760, PAN1761, and PAN1026 Bluetooth modules, enabling designers to easily migrate previously developed software such as Bluetooth low energy profiles and applications.
A peak power consumption of 3.3mA in transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) mode, enables advanced wireless functionalities in IoT, medical, and industrial applications without compromising battery life.
The module is supported by the PAN1760A Evaluation Kit, which provides two USB dongles to allow designers to develop, run and debug code.
The dongles feature breakout headers that provide an easy way to connect sensors and other devices for rapid prototyping.
