Panasonic PAN1721 Series Bluetooth® Low Energy Modules
Panasonic PAN1721 Series Bluetooth® Low Energy Modules are complete power optimized Bluetooth v4.0 Low Energy (BLE) solutions including an embedded processor, antenna, and BLE stack.
PAN1721 is a cost-effective, ultra low-power, system-on-chip (SoC) for Bluetooth Low Energy and ultra low power consumption applications. The module includes an eight channel, 12-bit analog-to-digital converter, 19 GPIOs plus battery, and temperature sensors. A single device 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, 8KB 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 500nA in sleep mode. Short transition times between operating modes and power efficient hardware further reduce 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.
