  • Panasonic’s BLE module built for IoT applications allows large data transfer and broadcast  over long ranges
  • Ultra-low current consumption makes the module ideal for battery-powered devices

element14 has announced that it has begun shipping of Panasonic’s PAN1780 Bluetooth Low Energy Module, a Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy (LE) module based on the Nordic nRF52840 single-chip controller. The module is ideal for IoT devices within smart city infrastructure, industrial mesh networks or robotics within Industry 4.0 environments.

The Bluetooth 5.0 enables a higher symbol rate of 2 Mbps via the high-speed LE 2M PHY with significantly longer range possible using the LE coded PHY at 500 kb/s or 125 kb/s. Also, new LE advertising extensions allow for much larger amounts of data to be broadcasted in connectionless scenarios. The PAN1780 also supports Type 2 Near Field Communication (NFC-A) for use in simplified pairing and payment solutions (external antenna required).


⦁ Cortex M4F processor, 256 kB RAM and built-in 1 MB flash memory eliminates the need for an external processor, saving complexity, space and cost
⦁ Ultra-low current consumption makes the module ideal for battery-powered devices
⦁ The output power of up to 8 dBm and the high sensitivity of the nRF52840 in combination with the LE coded PHY support applications where a long-range is required
⦁ Rich set of security features from the ARM TrustZone CryptoCell 310 security subsystem enable secure device operation ideal for smart health and secure medical peripherals or edge computing.
⦁ The module benefits from a built-in temperature sensor, giving an operating temperature range of -40 degrees Celsius up to 85 degrees Celsius.
