| Panasonic Electronic Components introduces the PAN1720 Series, a complete Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy solution. Modules in this Series include an embedded processor, antenna and Bluetooth Low Energy stack.
The PAN1720 Series is a cost-effective, low-power, true system-on-chip (SoC) for Bluetooth Low Energy applications. The module includes an eight channel, twelve bit analog-to-digital converter, 19 GPIOs, plus battery and temperature sensors. A single device functions as both Bluetooth Low Energy master or slave nodes. The PAN1720 Series 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 PAN1720 Series 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 – 3μS Wake-Up – and power efficient hardware further reduce current consumption.
