The new PAN1760 Series Bluetooth Smart module v4.1 with integrated antenna and embedded GATT profile is a cost-effective, low-power, true system-on-chip (SoC) solution. This nanopower module for the Internet of Things, launched by Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems, is available at distributor Rutronik.
The PAN1760 module is suitable for low energy Bluetooth applications such as data transfer to smartphones and tablets, wireless health monitoring, smart home, general industry, and portable applications without host MCU. It is based on Toshiba’s single chip TC35667-006 Bluetooth semiconductor device. The integrated RF transceiver’s programmable EEPROM memory (512kb) and RAM memory (32kb) can be used for application code storage and execution, furthermore they allow for stand-alone operation without any need for a host MCU. Central and Peripheral Mode are supported and the part benefits from FCC, IC, as well as CE approvals. Very low-power sleep modes are available and short transition times between operating modes further enable low power consumption.
Enlarging Panasonic's Toshiba based Bluetooth module ecosystem, the PAN1760 Series and PAN1026 Series share the same form factor and module footprint. Bluetooth LE applications and profiles developed using the PAN1026 can almost be transferred one-to-one to the PAN1760. Only small changes for the higher feature set of PAN1760 are needed.
