Panasonic Industry launches the successor of the PAN1740 Bluetooth module. The new PAN1740A is the optimized version, offering a quicker boot time and supporting up to eight connections to allow greater flexibility to create more advanced applications. It can be used as a standalone application processor or as a data pump in hosted systems. The device is optimized for remote control units (RCU) requiring support for voice commands and motion/gesture recognition.
PAN1740 is the next generation Bluetooth Low Energy Module from Panasonic with reduced form factor, significantly lower power consumption and embedded Software Stack. The Singlemode Bluetooth Smart System-on-Chip module is optimized for low power, small size and low system cost products. It reduces external component count, development effort and time to market.
The Module is manufactured in a very small 9.0* 9.5* 1.8 mm3 SMD package with shielded case and chip antenna. The power consumption of only 4.9mA in Tx and Rx mode makes the use of coin cell batteries possible or reduces the needed battery capacity and cost of existing solution by at least 50%. It is qualified according to Bluetooth 4.2 standard. FCC, IC and CE approvals are under preparation. The PAN1740 comes with a complete software development platform, which includes a qualified Bluetooth Smart single-mode stack on chip. Multiple Bluetooth Smart profiles for consumer wellness, sport, fitness, security and proximity applications are supplied as standard, while additional customer profiles can be developed and added as needed.
