Introducing the NEW PAN1325A/1315A Series Bluetooth RF Modules from Panasonic Electronic Components, now providing Texas Instruments' NEW CC2560A controller in an easy-to-use RF Module format with Bluetooth, FCC, IC and CE certifications. A ROM update from Texas Instruments to the already popular CC2560 IC has allowed Panasonic to improve its top selling PAN1325/1315 Series. The NEW PAN1325A/1315A Series Modules has increased power and system efficiency resulting from reduced initialization script size, start-up time and decreased system memory requirements.
Introducing the NEW PAN1321i Series Bluetooth RF Module compatible with Apple devices such as the iPod®, iPhone® and iPad®. The PAN1321i Series interfaces with the Apple authentication coprocessor and supports iPod Accessory Protocol (iAP) to enable Bluetooth Serial Port data communication with Bluetooth enabled Apple devices. The PAN1321i Series wireless Bluetooth connectivity also includes compatibility with Android, smart phones and most Bluetooth enabled devices.
Introducing Panasonic's latest breakthrough in wireless networking, the New PAN1326/1316 Series RF Modules featuring both Bluetooth Low Energy and Bluetooth connectivity. This powerful new technology combination creates a low cost, ultra-low power wireless networking solution for short range applications.
One development module, three standards: Bluetooth Classic, Bluetooth Low Energy and ANT™.This unique triple mode ETU – that's ETU for "Easy-To-Use" – module plugs directly into Panasonic development kits, Texas Instruments MSP430 and Stellaris experimenter boards with the added benefit of header connectors that simplify prototype wiring and field trials.
Introducing Panasonic's newest breakthrough in wireless networking, the PAN1327/1317 Series RF Modules featuring both Dynastream's ANT wireless protocol and Bluetooth connectivity. This powerful new technology combination creates a low cost, ultra-low power wireless networking solution for short range applications.
NEW PAN1311/1321 SERIES BLUETOOTH® RF MODULES Featuring Serial Port Profile (SPP)
Introducing the New PAN1311/1321 Series. This series of Bluetooth RF Modules is a highly integrated, cost engineered solution for Bluetooth applications using Serial Port Profile (SPP). The PAN1311/1321 Series is a full Bluetooth system solution, with an integrated controller and antenna, Bluetooth transceiver, SPP Profile, FCC and Bluetooth product certifications. Using Panasonic’s exclusive “tiny footprint” technology, incorporating a Surface Mount Device (SMD) Land Grid Array (LGA) package, the PAN1311/1321 Series is just 15.6 mm by 8.7 mm!
Bluetooth Products For Patient Monitoring
Patient Monitoring — Wireless patient monitoring improves patient mobility and reduces risk of cable entanglements and electric shock. Many network protocols are used in the medical market today with little very interactivity amongst medical equipment manufacturers. The Continua Health Alliance is drafting a protocol for wireless patient monitoring and medical equipment communication. Panasonic is a founding member of the Continua Alliance and is one of the very few module manufacturers that will soon have hardware capable supporting the Continua Alliance protocol.
Bluetooth Products For Inventory Management
If the objective is to determine the presence or absence of products or goods inventory control may be inexpensively accomplished with passive RFID systems. Passive RFID tags contain no power source and rely upon a magnetically induced energy from the reader for power. The result is long life, although passive tags do not have the ability to communicate until a reader is within range, typically several feet or less. When inventory environment monitoring is needed wireless sensor networks monitor and report temperature, humidity, shock, smoke and more. Panasonic modules with integrated SNAP firmware allow engineers to quickly test different protocols – ISM, 802.15.4, Bluetooth -- and determine the best solution for a specific application. Panasonic offers nearly fifty different modules to build a wireless sensor network fine tuned to specific application requirements.
