New dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5 module PAN9028
Panasonic Industry now presents the PAN9028 Wi-Fi® radio module with integrated Bluetooth® wireless functionality.
Nowadays, the fast-paced product development cycles in almost any field of applications require designers to resort to efficient solutions that enable quicker prototyping, shortened certification processes – and a reasonable BOM.
Specifically, for those highly-integrated and cost-effective applications, Panasonic Industry now introduces the PAN9028, a dual band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi radio module with integrated Bluetooth BR/EDR/Low Energywireless functionality, based on the NXP Semiconductors 88W8987 wireless chipset.
“The 802.11ac capable, simultaneous and independent operation of the two standards enables high data throughput and low-power operation”, summarizes Tomislav Tipura from Panasonic Industry Europe in Ottobrunn, Germany. The PAN9028 supports download data rates of up to 433 Mbit/s – and optionally includes a power management IC, which allows simpler hardware design and reducing BOM costs.Tx power calibration data, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth system parameters for CE RED, FCC and ISED regions are pre-stored on the module’s one-time-programmable memory during production, which means that only one part number is needed for the three different regions. In terms of security, the PAN9028 complies with the IEEE 802.11i standard and comprises AES cryptography, CCMP as well as other established mechanisms. Reliable performance and quality, speed, and safety: For anyone interested in minimizing design, testing, calibration and certification efforts, the PAN9028 module might be the key to achieve a faster time to market.
