Panasonic’s next generation, smartphone compatible, place and play Bluetooth module, the PAN1322 Series features an embedded microcontroller, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR stack, serial port profile (SPP), AT command set API and antenna. This cost engineered solution is based on a single chip solution that integrates an ARM7TDMI processor with a Bluetooth controller. The BT 2.1 + EDR stack provides secure, reliable, high speed data connections using Secure Simple Paring (SSP) eliminating manual password creation. Embedded serial port profile (SPP) frees application resources while the AT command set API creates a simple firmware interface using modem commands. An onboard antenna does away with 2.4GHz RF circuit complexity.
Created with the design engineer in mind, product design cycles are greatly reduced using Panasonic’s reference design and design review services. PCB layouts are simplified using available Gerber files and minimized with Panasonic’s tiny footprint technology. The module is and is just 15.6mm x 8.7mm x 2.8mm and fully shielded to improve immunity. GPIO is exposed using AT commands. All Panasonic Bluetooth RF modules carry FCC, IC, CE Bluetooth certifications.
The PAN1322 Series recognizes Apple’s authentication coprocessor and supports Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP) data communication1 with Apple’s iPhone and iPad®*. Connectivity also includes Android, smart phones and all Bluetooth enabled devices2.
