Panasonic’s PAN9026 Dual-Mode Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5 module boasts high data rates and low power

The PAN9026A Series dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5 radio module from Panasonic combines 2.4/5 GHz IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n support with Bluetooth BDR/EDR/LE functionality for flexible connectivity options in smart energy, home gateways, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

The module is now available from Mouser Electronics, and features Dynamic Rapid Channel Switching (DRCS) for simultaneous operation in 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The independent operation of the two standards enables high data rates up to 150Mbits per second to meet IEEE 802.11n specifications plus low power consumption of 400mA (transmit) and 70mA (receive).

The device features integrated power management, a fast dual-core CPU, 802.11i security standard support, and high-speed data interfaces.

It also includes pre-stored transmit power calibration data and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth system parameters on the one-time-programmable memory to simplify certification processes.
