PAN1780 Series Bluetooth® 5.0 Low-Energy RF Module

The ultra-low current consumption of Panasonic's low-energy RF module makes it perfect for battery-powered devices

Image of Panasonic's PAN1780 Series Bluetooth® 5.0 Low-Energy RF ModulePanasonic’s PAN1780 series Bluetooth 5.0 low-energy RF module is based on the Nordic nRF52840 single-chip controller. Its features enable a higher symbol rate of 2 Mbps using the high-speed LE 2M PHY or a significantly longer range using the LE-coded PHY at 500 KB/s or 125 KB/s. The channel selection algorithm (CSA#2) improves performance in high-interference environments. Furthermore, the LE advertising extensions allow for much larger amounts of data to be broadcasted in connectionless scenarios.

An output power of up to 8 dBm and the high sensitivity of the Nordic nRF52840 in combination with the LE-coded PHY make the PAN1780 series RF module very attractive in applications where long range is required. In addition, the ultra-low current consumption of the PAN1780 makes this RF module an ideal choice for battery-powered devices. With the Cortex® M4F processor, 256 KB RAM, and the built-in 1 MB Flash memory, the PAN1780 series can easily be used in standalone mode, thereby eliminating the need for an external processor and saving complexity, space, and cost. The rich set of security features from the Arm® TrustZone® CryptoCell® 310 security subsystem provides the necessary means for secure device operation in the IoT space. The PAN1780 also supports type-2 near field communication (NFC-A) for use in simplified pairing and payment solutions (external antenna required). FCC, IC, and CE approvals are in preparation.

Panasonic's PAN1780 evaluation kit is all-inclusive and comprehensive, consisting of two USB dongles and two external NFC antennas. Each dongle allows design engineers to develop, run, and debug code with the PAN1780 series module. The break-out headers provide an easy way to connect sensors as well as other devices for rapid prototyping. The USB evaluation boards are delivered without any preinstalled software examples, but an integration guide is available to explain how to use the recommended development environment and the free Nordic Semiconductor software development kit to run different kinds of Bluetooth, Thread, ZigBee, 802.15.4, and antennae software examples.
