Panasonic PAN4620 IEEE 802.15.4 + Bluetooth® low energy 4.2 module
Panasonic Industry Europe is showing PAN4620 series Internet of Things dual mode module comprising NXP’s Kinetis KW41Z SoC - a 2.4 GHz 802.15.4 and Bluetooth® Low Energy wireless radio microcontroller based on an ARM® CortexM0+ core
The PAN4620 is Panasonic’s Internet of Things dual mode module comprising NXP’s Kinetis KW41Z SoC - a 2.4 GHz 802.15.4 and Bluetooth® Low Energy wireless radio microcontroller based on an ARM® CortexM0+ core.
To provide maximum flexibility, the module can be operated in standalone and hosted mode. With 512 kB flash memory and 128 kB SRAM the PAN4620 can easily be used as a standalone controller in very small and low power applications eliminating the need for an external processor, saving complexity, space and cost. But also the integration of 802.15.4 and/or BLE connectivity into existing applications can easily be achieved when using the PAN4620 in hosted mode.
Using the PAN4620 with a TX power consumption of 6.8 mA and an RX power consumption of 6.1 mA in combination with NXP’s certified Thread® stack, BLE stack or a combination of both for concurrent operation allows to meet IoT application requirements without the need for a gateway. Since Thread® does not define an application layer, various application layers can be used, such as dotdot, IoTivity, OpenDOF and others.
