Panasonic has released two radio modules which integrate all the features required to implement dual-mode Bluetooth® Low Energy and Classic Bluetooth networks for short-range wireless connectivity.
The new PAN1326 and PAN1316 Host Controlled Interface (HCI) series modules are fully qualified Bluetooth v4.1 Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) radios, supplied with Bluetooth, FCC, IC and CE certificates.
The PAN1326, which has a built-in antenna, occupies a tiny footprint of just 85.5mm2. The PAN1316 with no antenna is even smaller, at 6.5mm x 9mm x 1.8mm. The modules are designed to accommodate a PCB’s pad pitch of 1.3mm and as few as two layers for easy production.
• 10dBm output power for extended range
• Operating-temperature range: -40°C to 85°C
• Supply-voltage range: 1.8V to 4.8V
• Supports SPP, A2DP, AVRCP and many other Bluetooth profiles
