PAN4620 Series IEEE® 802.15.4 and Bluetooth&#

Panasonic’s PAN4620 series dual mode RF module is comprised of NXP’s Kinetis® KW41Z SoC - a 2.4 GHz 802.15.4 and Bluetooth Low Energy wireless radio microcontroller with an integrated Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core. An all-inclusive and comprehensive evaluation kit consisting of one daughterboard in an ESD bag is available for development.

To provide maximum flexibility, Panasonic's PAN4620 series module can be operated in standalone and hosted modes. With 512 kB Flash memory and 128 kB SRAM, the PAN4620 can easily be used as a standalone controller, eliminating the need for an external processor as well as reducing complexity, space, and cost. It is well-suited for very small and low-power applications. Integration of 802.15.4 and/or BLE connectivity into existing applications can also easily be achieved when using the PAN4620 in hosted mode.

Using the PAN4620 with low power consumption in combination with NXP’s certified Thread® stack, BLE stack, or a combination of both for concurrent operation allows meeting IoT application requirements without the need for a gateway. Since thread does not define an application layer, various application layers can be used, such as Dotdot, IoTivity, OpenDOF, and others.
