The PAN1325B/1315B Series Bluetooth RF Modules from Panasonic is based on Texas Instruments’ CC2560B controller in an easy-to-use RF Module format with Bluetooth, FCC, IC and CE certifications. A ROM update from Texas Instruments to the already popular CC2560A IC has allowed Panasonic to improve its top selling PAN1325A/1315A Series. The PAN1325B/1315B Series Modules has increased system and power efficiency resulting from reduced initialization script size, start-up time and decreased system memory requirements; supports ten simultaneous BLE connections -- increased from six and integrated SBC encoding and decoding for A2DP implementations, eliminating the requirement for an external CODEC.
All of Panasonic’s Bluetooth RF Modules feature unique, tiny footprint technology and are designed to accommodate PCBs with pad pitch of 1.3mm with as little as two layers for easy implementation and manufacturing. Available with or without an embedded antenna, the PAN1325B/1315B Series provides easily integrated Bluetooth connectivity into new and current designs by removing RF design and certification barriers from the application.
As the newest addition to Panasonic’s Host Controlled Interface (HCI) Bluetooth RF Module product line, the PAN1325B/1315B Series has all the features of the existing and proven PAN1325A/1315A Series but with the added benefit of the improved efficiency.
An updated initialization script is required for modules based on the CC2560B. Compatibility of CC2560, CC2560A and CC2560B based products is a function of Bluetooth stack firmware residing on the host processor.
