PAN1721 Series Bluetooth® Low Energy Module

Panasonic's PAN1721, a complete, power-optimized Bluetooth v4.0 low energy (BLE) solution, this module includes an embedded processor, antenna, and BLE stack. The PAN1721 is engineered for ultra-low power consumption applications.

The PAN1721 is a cost-effective, ultra-low-power, system-on-chip (SoC) for Bluetooth low energy applications. The module includes an eight channel, twelve-bit analog-to-digital converter, 19 GPIOs, as well as battery and temperature sensors. The device functions for both BLE master or slave nodes. The PAN1721 combines an excellent RF transceiver with a high performance, low power 8051 microcontroller, in-system programmable flash memory, 8 KB RAM, and many other powerful supporting features and peripherals.

The PAN1721 is an ideal choice for applications where battery life is a critical application requirement, using only 500 nA in sleep mode. Short transition times between operating modes – 3 uS Wake-Up – and power efficient hardware further reduces current consumption.

Panasonic offers Bluetooth low energy protocol stacks and applications from Texas Instruments and BlueRadios™. The BlueRadios stack enables rapid and low cost development using an AT command set without the need for a compiler. Additional advantages include UART programming, over-the-air-updates, easy integration "C” library framework, serial streaming of data, and smart phone libraries and applications.
