Panasonic introduces a fully embedded WiFi module with an integrated stack and API that minimizes firmware development and includes a full security suite. The PAN9310/9320 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 high throughput data rates are required.
The module is a cost-effective, power-efficient solution for WLAN applications. The PAN9310/9320 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 WiFi connections from the PAN9310/9320 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 PAN9310/9320 Series UART unmodified to the air interface to smart devices, web servers or PC applications.
The PAN9310/9320 Series is qualified to the IEEE 802.11 b/g/n standards. All Panasonic Bluetooth RF modules carry FCC, IC, CE and Bluetooth 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.
