FCC Approved
The PAN4561 is an extended range 2.4GHz, ISM RF module. Modules may be configured from simple point-to-point proprietary devices to complex mesh networks by choosing from different firmware options.

Optional Synapse SNAP firmware provides a highly flexible, industry leading solution for mesh networking with a complete network development environment. The module uses the same FreeScale eight bit GT60 processor as Panasonic's popular PAN4555 making the two products application compatible. The PAN4561 has 55 pins allowing access to the full functionality of the MC13213 SOC. Low noise and power amplifiers have been added to the PAN4561 for extended range. With a maximum transmit power of 20dBm and receive sensitivity is -105dBm this module has a link margin of 125dBm, giving it the best range in its class.

Multiple antenna options are available including, ceramic antenna, SMD pad output, and UFL connector. This module complies with EN300328, FCC CFR Part 15 and ARIB STD-T66, FCC and IC certifications.
