Panasonic's PAN1782 Series Bluetooth® 5.3 Low Energy Module is based on the Nordic nRF52833 single-chip controller, allowing for much larger amounts of data broadcasted in connectionless scenarios. Bluetooth® 5.3 features 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 new channel selection algorithm, CSA#2, improves performance in high-interference environments.
The output power of up to 8 dBm and the high sensitivity of the nRF52833, combined with the LE Coded PHY, make the module very attractive in applications with long-range requirements. The PAN1782 Series includes up to 16 shared general purpose I/O’s (GPIO), with up to 4× SPI, 2× I²C, 2× UART, 8CH ADC, COMP, QDEC, NFC-A, 4× PWM, nRESET but limited by the number of available GPIO ports.
In addition, the ultra-low current consumption of the PAN1782 Series makes the module an ideal choice for battery-powered devices. With the ARM® Cortex®-M4 processor, 128 kB RAM, and the built-in 512 kB flash memory, the PAN1782 Series can easily be used in standalone mode, eliminating the need for an external processor, saving complexity, space, and cost.
Using Bluetooth, the PAN1782 Series supports angle of arrival (AOA) and angle of departure (AOD) direction finding, suitable for asset tracking and inventory management. It also features a 128-bit AES/ECB/CCM/AAR co-processor for on-the-fly packet encryption. This module supports Type 2 Near Field Communication or NFC-A for simplified pairing and payment solutions with an external antenna.
The PAN1782 Series Evaluation Board is also now available.
From comfort and convenience to security and energy efficiency, homes are becoming increasingly intelligent. And the ways we control and monitor our smart environments are constantly evolving to become more automated, integrated, and sustainable. Panasonic offers the electronic components and devices needed to design the next generation of smart home products, from robotic vacuums to voice-activated speakers.
