Easy-to-Use Format, Improved Power Efficiency
Introducing the NEW PAN1326B/1316B Series Bluetooth RF Modules from Panasonic, featuring both Bluetooth Low Energy and Bluetooth connectivity, based on Texas Instruments’ NEW CC2564B 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 CC2564 IC has allowed Panasonic to improve its top selling PAN1326/1316 Series. The NEW PAN1326B/1316B 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.
Panasonic’s tiny footprint technology offers a module of only 85.5 mm2 including antenna. The modules are designed to accommodate PCBs pad pitch of 1.3mm and as little as two layers for easy implementation and manufacture.
The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) standard is designed to reduce power consumption by establishing very fast connections (few ms) and transferring small amounts of data. Using these techniques, energy consumption is reduced to a tenth of a Classic Bluetooth device. Bluetooth Smart Ready devices can communicate with both Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy devices. Smart Ready devices take advantage of the data rate of Bluetooth Classic (3Mb/s) and ultra fast connection time of Bluetooth Low Energy (3mS).
