PAN1761 supports both Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) 4.1 and NFC – NFC Forum Type 3 compliant tag – based on leading edge Toshiba SOC. The unique configuration of the PAN1761 allows NFC to wake up BLE from standby using an NFC field and automatically initiate a Bluetooth connection. Highly secure Bluetooth connections are created using NFC to exchange link keys. Bluetooth LE applications with extended battery life are possible as a result of zero power consumption in standby mode. A remote device may independently create a wake up signal with neither host control nor local battery consumption. Embedded microcontroller access and 32KB EEPROM is available for autonomous stand-alone operation.
