Lowest power Bluetooth low energy SoC

Panasonic Industry Europe has launched its next generation Bluetooth module with the lowest power Bluetooth Low Energy SoC. The new PAN1760A module benefits from a peak power consumption of only 3.3mA in Tx and Rx mode, enabling advanced wireless functionalities in IoT, medical, and industrial applications without compromising battery life. Mandatory and optional Bluetooth 4.2 features are supported.

The small SMD device (only 15.6mm x 8.7mm x 1.9mm) SMD module is based on Toshiba's single chip TC35678 Bluetooth semiconductor device with embedded Toshiba Bluetooth 4.2 LE stack and embedded flash for user applications in stand-alone operation. The PAN1760A product can either be operated in AT-Command or Host mode for very simple integration of Bluetooth connectivity into existing products, or in Stand-Alone mode. In Stand-Alone mode, with 256 kB flash memory and 83 kB RAM for user application, the PAN1760A can be used for many applications without the need for an external processor, saving cost, complexity, and space.

Pascal Meier, Product Manager at Panasonic comments: “Design engineers can easily migrate from using older versions of the PAN1760, the PAN1761, and the PAN1026 modules to our new PAN1760A component as all versions share exactly the same footprint. The required code changes when migrating from PAN1026 or PAN1760 are only very minor. Previously developed software (Bluetooth Low Energy profiles and applications) can also easily be migrated with a minimal effort.”

The PAN1760A module is currently awaiting FCC, IC, and CE approval.
