The PAN4561ETU is an excellent choice for development environments and production projects where a connector or through-hole technology is required. Remember this unique part by its suffix, “ETU” which is short for “Easy-To-Use”. This module is based on Panasonic’s PAN4561 extended range RF module and features 24 pins in two single rows of 2mm header connectors on the bottom side of the module in addition to 18 pads which are accessible from the top of module allowing access to all 33 of the PAN4561 I/O lines and more.
The PAN4561 module is a long range, low power, 2.4 GHz ISM band transceiver. The module includes two antenna options, a complete 802.15.4 physical layer (PHY) modem, designed for the IEEE 802.15.4 wireless standard and an appropriate microcontroller (MCU). The RF front end consists of a power amplifier (PA) and a low noise amplifier (LNA) for extended range. This module complies with EN300328, FCC CFR Part 15 and ARIB STD-T66.
