ANT protocol is perfectly suited for low data rate sensor network topologies in personal area networks (PANs) and practical wireless sensor networks (WSN’s). ANT+ managed network software facilitates the collection, automatic transfer and tracking of sensor data for monitoring personal wellness information. ANT+ applications are most commonly found in sports and low power medical devices.
The PAN1327/1317 Host Controlled Interface (HCI) Series also brings Texas Instrument’s CC2567, to an easy-to-use module format. Panasonic’s tiny footprint technology offers a module of only 85.5 mm2 including antenna. The modules are designed to accommodate PCBs pad pitch of 1.3mm and as little as two layers for easy implementation and manufacture.
