PAN1026A - Bluetooth Basic Data Rate and Low Energy Module

The PAN1026A is based on Toshiba ́s single chip TC35661 Bluetooth semiconductor device with an embedded Toshiba Bluetooth SIG certified stack. The PAN1026A is a highly integrated Dual Mode Bluetooth controller that delivers high-speed operation at ultra-low power consumption. An embedded SPP (Serial Port Profile of Bluetooth Classic) and a GATT (Generic Attribute Profile of Bluetooth LE) stack are integrated. The module significantly reduces external component count and power consumption in applications requiring support of Bluetooth 4.2 standards. The PAN1026A does not support EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) or Central Mode. Details about iAP integration can be provided on request. The integrated EEPROM has a Panasonic MAC address and it can be used to store Link Keys.

The module allows for serving both legacy Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy connections with rapid connection and disconnection,needed by a wide range of applications, all at a small form factor. Compared to the PAN1026, the PAN1026A has additional features for secure connections via Bluetooth LE and it is fully backwards compatible. Next to increased low energy transfer speed, transmission power can also be controlled. The PAN1026A module is manufactured in a small package with a shielded case and it is qualified according to the Bluetooth 2.1 and 4.2 standards. FCC, IC, MIC, and CE approval are available.
