PAN1761 Embedded Bluetooth® RF Module

Panasonic’s embedded Bluetooth low energy (BLE) and NFC combination RF module is designed for highly secure connections

Image of Panasonic PAN1761 Embedded Bluetooth® RF ModuleIntroducing Panasonic’s embedded BLE and NFC combination RF module, the PAN1761 series. PAN1761 supports both BLE 4.1 and NFC (NFC Forum Type 3 Tag) based on leading edge Toshiba SOC. The unique configuration of the PAN1761 allows NFC to wake up BLE from standby using an NFC field and automatically initiate a Bluetooth connection. Highly secure Bluetooth connections are created using NFC to exchange link keys.

BLE applications with extended battery life are possible as a result of zero power consumption in standby mode. A remote device may independently create a wake up signal with neither host control nor local battery consumption. Embedded microcontroller access and 32 KB EEPROM is available for autonomous stand-alone operation.

  • Unique combination of BLE and NFC
    • NFC wakeup for products with zero standby power consumption
    • Added security with BT pairing via NFC “out-of-band pairing”
    • Android APK available for NFC pairing
    • Select Bluetooth nodes individually via NFC
    • Start mobile apps automatically
  • Small 15.6 x 8.7 x 1.8 mm³ SMD package
  • Same form factor and footprint as PAN1026 and PAN1760
  • Integrated 2.4 GHz antenna, NFC antenna external (antenna pin)
  • Compliant with NFC Forum Tag Type 3 for easy pairing initialization and transfer of small amounts of data (ISO/IEC18092)
  • Bluetooth 4.1 (LE) embedded GATT profile with high-level API commands, compatible with Toshiba reference BLE profiles
  • Operation as host-less, stand alone with 32 KB available for applications
  • Standard SIG BLE and “SPP over BLE” profiles available
  • Plug-in for Bluetooth developer studio available
