Mouser stocks Panasonic’s voice-activated PAN1740A BLE module
Designed with an integrated baseband processor and radio transceivers for Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy connectivity, Panasonic’s PAN1740A Series RF module is now available from Mouser.
The compact module supports up to eight connections and has reduced boot time, providing a suitable solution for remote control units that demand support for motion and gesture recognition and voice commands.
The PAN1740A module integrates an audio unit to provide a simple interface for external codecs over PCM/I²S, MEMS microphones over PDM, and a sample rate converter unit. It also has a programmable Arm Cortex-M0 CPU. The versatile module can be used as a standalone application processor or as a data pump in hosted systems. The module draws just 4.9mA in transmit or receive mode, allowing the use of coin cell batteries with no reduction of signal range or transmit power. The 9.0 x 9.5 x 1.8mm module offers a link budget of 93dBm (Rx sensitivity: -93dBm, Tx sensitivity 0dBm).
The PAN1740A transceiver is fully certified with the Bluetooth 5.0 standard as well as EU CE RED, FCC and IC. The module features dedicated hardware for the link layer implementation of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and supports custom profiles and all Bluetooth SIG profiles.
It is supported by the PAN1740A evaluation kit. Comprised of two easy-to-use USB dongles, the evaluation kit has a USB-to-UART converter and allows hardware access to the module pins. It also provides a J-Link debug interface to evaluate custom firmware.
