The PAN9028 Series Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® 5 Dual Band Combo Module features 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz while supporting 802.11i a/b/g/n/ac security standards through AES, CCMP, and other security mechanisms. The PAN9028 Series is ideal for highly integrated and cost-effective applications and multimedia applications with 802.11e Quality of Service or QoS features. The simultaneous and independent operation of the two standards enables high data rates with 802.11ac and with the low-power operation of Bluetooth Low Energy.
The PAN9028 Series provides high-speed data delivery performance, reliability, and the quality requirements of next-generation products. Featuring, Tx power calibration data, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth®, these system parameters are pre-stored on the one-time-programmable memory of the PAN9028 Series Module. This simplifies the certification process by reducing design, testing, and calibration efforts resulting in reduced time-to-market compared to discrete solutions. The new PAN9028 Series also offers an optional integrated PMIC that ensures one required supply voltage for the otherwise necessary four different internal voltage levels. This greatly simplifies hardware design while also reducing BOM costs.
The PAN9028 Series is based on the NXP® chipset 88W8987 supporting 802.11a/b/g/n/ac simultaneous station, access point, and Wi-Fi Direct operations. The module is connected through the SDIO device interface to the host processor platform running a Linux operating system.
General Features and Benefits
The PAN9028 Series Adapter Kit and Evaluation Kit demonstrates the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth application integration on a common host processor platform, NXPs i.MX6. The PAN9028 Series Adapter Kit and Evaluation Kit enables quick prototyping and software testing options, including the XFCE Desktop Environment that has implemented all necessary Linux user space applications like DHCP-Server and Client, Web-Server, Terminal Emulator, Web-Browser, Network Manager, and Multimedia Control. For demonstrating Wi-Fi based connectivity with PAN9028 Series, known wireless configuration utilities like hostapd, wpa-supplicant, nl80211 netlink, and wireless extensions are part of the environment. The Bluetooth capability shown by the integrated BlueSDK stack is present by a A2DP Pulse Audio and a Low Energy Beacon application.
Panasonic’s New 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n PAN9520 Series Embedded Wi-Fi RF Module based on Espressif ESP32-S2 that includes the powerful Xtensa® 32-bit LX7 CPU. Although the new PAN9520 Series is one of the smallest RF Modules on the market, it offers a rich set of peripherals like full-speed USB OTG, SPI, UART, I2C, and much more. The PAN9520 Evaluation Kit is an all-inclusive and comprehensive Evaluation Kit that supports the Espressif Integrated Development Framework (ESP-IDF). It is an Arduino form factor board that has a PAN9520 RF Module with 4MB or 1MB of Flash memory, a 40MHz crystal oscillator and a chip antenna onboard.
