Panasonic’s PAN1026A Bluetooth 4.2 Module Simplifies Integration in Current Designs

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the PAN1026A embedded dual-mode Bluetooth 4.2 module from Panasonic. The PAN1026A is an advanced, highly integrated module that delivers high-speed, ultra-low-power opera­tion with easy integration into current design.

The Panasonic PAN1026A device, available from Mouser Electronics, comes with an embedded Bluetooth SIG-certified stack that supports a Bluetooth Basic Rate SPP profile along with a comprehensive and extended Bluetooth low energy GATT profiles and services. The PAN1026A’s all-inclusive design provides all required clocks, EEPROM, and an integrated antenna, which significantly reduces external component count and power consumption in applications that require dual support for both Basic Rate and low energy. The PAN1026A is fully backward compatible to the PAN1026 module and offers additional features, such as a Bluetooth low energy extended maximum transmission unit, LE Secure connections and enhanced BLE GATT.

For development and evaluation, Mouser also offers the EVAL_PAN1026AEMK Experimenter Kit and the EVAL_PAN1026A USB evaluation sticks. The EVAL_PAN1026AEMK Experimenter Kit includes a J-Link Lite adaptor, USB cable, and PAN1026A evaluation board. The EVAL_PAN1026A USB evaluation sticks feature a USB-to-UART converter, and allow access to the module pins to help accelerate prototyping and testing.

The PAN1760A module and development tools can help wireless designers quickly add Bluetooth low energy technology to embedded devices, wearables, industrial and medical diagnostic systems, and mobile phone accessories.
