Mouser Electronics stocks the PAN1762 series RF module from Panasonic, an ultra-low-power Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 module that enables the transmission of large amounts of data in connectionless environments, providing a compact solution for IoT, beacon and mesh network applications.
The module is based on the Toshiba TC35680 single-chip controller, which provides an Arm Cortex-M0 processor core with serial wire debug interface and 128kB of flash memory. It integrates standard Bluetooth Low Energy profiles in addition to serial port profile, and offers three types of operation: host mode, AT command mode (coming soon) and a stand-alone mode that eliminates the need for an external processor.
The module’s Bluetooth 5.0 features enable a high symbol rate of 2Mbps using the high-speed 2M PHY or a significantly longer range using the Low Energy-coded PHY at 500 or 125Kbps. A high output power of up to 8dBm and the industry-leading sensitivity of the TC35680 (-105dBm at 125Kbps) in combination with the Low Energy-coded PHY make the module very attractive in applications where a long range is required.
The module offers 18 general-purpose inputs/outputs, shared by two I2C, SPI and UART interfaces, four PWM outputs and five analog-to-digital converters. It measures a compact 15.6 x 8.7 x 1.9mm, and its low current consumption provides an ideal solution for battery-powered applications. It is also pinout compatible with the PAN1760A and PAN1026A Bluetooth modules, enabling designers to easily migrate previously developed software.
It is supported by the PAN1762 evaluation kit, which features two USB dongles for developing, running and debugging code, while breakout headers allow developers to connect sensors and devices for prototyping.
