Low power Bluetooth module targets IoT applications

Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems has announced a next-gen Bluetooth Smart module v4.1 with integrated antenna and embedded GATT profile. Designed for the IoT, the PAN1760 series is a cost-effective, low-power, true SoC solution for low energy Bluetooth applications such as data transfer to smartphones/tablets, wireless health monitoring, smart home, general industry and portable applications without host MCU.

The PAN1760 module is based on Toshiba’s single chip TC35667-006 Bluetooth semiconductor device. The integrated RF transceiver’s programmable EEPROM memory (512kb) and 32kb RAM memory can be used for application code storage and execution and 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.

The PAN1760 and PAN1026 series both share the same form factor and module footprint. BLE applications and profiles developed using the PAN1026 can almost be transferred 1:1 to the PAN1760. Only small changes for the higher feature set of PAN1760 are needed.

Simone Saile, Product Manager, Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems, commented: “With the introduction of the PAN1760 Bluetooth module Toshiba and Panasonic strengthen their cooperation with further new modules to come during 2016, creating a whole Bluetooth ecosystem.”
