PAN9020/9010 is a series of 2.4GHz ISM band wireless radio modules for implementing WLAN functionality into various electronic devices. The cost-effective, low-power operation, system-on-chip (SoC) solutions enable wireless network applications to be built with low total bill-of-material costs. The radio modules combine an excellent 802.11 wireless radio, baseband processor, medium access controller, encryption unit, boot ROM with patching capability, internal SRAM, in-system programmable flash memory and many other powerful supporting features and peripherals. The low-power operation is supporting deep sleep and standby modes by using the onboard power management unit. Layout design, calibration, and test efforts in production are reduced compared to discrete solutions, resulting
in a precious advantage in terms of time-to-market. Panasonic offers a software package supporting various Fedora Core Kernel versions. The Hardware Interface Driver controls the hardware interface on the HOST side. Furthermore, the software package from Marvell® consists of various applications, demonstrations and utilities.
The PAN9020/9010 Series has been Not Recommended For New Design. Please consult Panasonic Not Recommended For New Design Product Notice For PAN1026A, PAN1762, PAN9010, PAN9020, PAN9420 Series and Evaluation Kit NRFND.PG126.96.36.1990 for Affected Part Numbers.
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.
