New – High
One highly flexible RF Module, three popular standards: Bluetooth Classic, Bluetooth Low Energy and ANT. Panasonic introduces the NEW PAN1323 Series Triple Mode RF Module with embedded antenna. The PAN1323 Series provides easily integrated Bluetooth Version 4.0 and ANT connectivity into new and current designs by removing RF design and certification barriers from the development of the application. Gain unprecedented access using this three mode gateway module that can connect 14 Million ANT nodes to over 3 Billion Bluetooth nodes. Use Bluetooth EDR to manage large data requirements while taking advantage of extraordinary battery life using ultra-low power network technology found in Bluetooth Low Energy and ANT for small data loads.
Designers can reduce the size and cost of applications using Panasonic’s unique, tiny footprint technology. Just 85.5 mm2, this family of modules are designed to accommodate PCBs with pad pitch of 1.3mm with as little as two layers for easy implementation and manufacturing. PAN1323 Series Modules have a Bluetooth subsystem, FCC, CE, (ETSI) and IC certifications.
The NEW PAN1323 Series is based upon Texas Instrument’s CC256x integrated circuits and uses a host controlled interface (HCI), a cost effective and flexible means to implement a Bluetooth network. HCI reduces BOM cost by eliminating redundant processing capacity and giving designers the flexibility to work with a controller of their choosing, as the stacks reside and execute on the application’s host processor. The PAN1323 Series is pad compatible with Panasonic’s PAN1325A, PAN1326 and PAN1327 Series. A single PCB layout allows the flexibility of different protocol functionality implemented with only firmware.
