Wi-Fi Made Easy!  Quickly Add Wi-Fi to an Application with Panasonic's PAN9320 Series

Panasonic introduces a fully embedded Wi-Fi module with an integrated stack and API that minimizes firmware development and includes a full security suite.  The PAN9320 Series is a standalone 2.4GHz WiFi module, supporting the IEEE 802.11 b/g/n standards designed for applications.  where a small form factor and secure data connections are required. The module is a cost-effective, power-efficient solution for WLAN applications. The PAN9320 Series combines a high-performance CPU, high-sensitivity (-98dBm) wireless radio, baseband processor, medium access controller, encryption unit, boot ROM with patching capability, internal SRAM and in-system programmable flash memory.  The module’s integrated memory is available to the application to store web content such as html pages or image data.

Coincident support of access point and infrastructure modes enable easy setup up allowing Wi-Fi connections from the PAN9320 Series to smart devices and home network routers, simultaneously. WLAN SoC firmware enables client (STA), micro access point (uAP) and Ad-hoc mode (Wi-Fi direct) applications.  Transparent mode permits data to be sent from the PAN9320 Series UART unmodified to the air interface to smart devices, web servers or pc applications.

The PAN9320 Series is qualified to the IEEE 802.11 b/g/n standards.  All Panasonic Wi-Fi RF modules carry FCC, IC and CE certifications. Panasonic calibrates and tests every module eliminating a time consuming application production process and cost. Panasonic cost engineering lowers component count and the application BOM.  With a fully shielded case, integrated crystal oscillators and chip antenna contained in a footprint of just 29 x 13.5 x 2.66 mm³.
