The PAN1762 from Panasonic is a Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy RF Module based on the Toshiba TC35680 single-chip controller. The new Bluetooth 5.0 standard enables a higher data rate of 2 Mbps using the high-speed 2M PHY or a significantly longer range using the LE coded PHY at 500 kb/s or 125 kb/s. A high output power of up to 8 dBm (target value) and the leading sensitivity of the TC35680 in combination with the LE coded PHY make the module very attractive in applications, where a long range is required.
This ultra-low current consuming module is an ideal choice for Battery powered devices and its various sleep modes can be used to minimize power consumption and prolong Battery lifetime. The Module can be operated in hosted as well as stand-alone mode. It has 128 kB flash memory and 128 kB internal RAM for application code and data patches. The module can easily be used in user-app mode, thereby eliminating the need for an external processor, saving complexity, space, and cost. It is available in a surface mount package that measures 15.6 x 8.7 x 1.9 mm and is ideal for beacon and mesh applications. FCC, IC, and CE approval are in preparation.
