Panasonic Industry has launched a dual band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi radio module with integrated Bluetooth BR/EDR/Low Energy wireless functionality, based on the NXP Semiconductors 88W8987 wireless chipset.
The PAN9028 supports download data rates of up to 433 Mbit/s and optionally includes a power management IC, which allows simpler hardware design only one supply voltage required for the otherwise necessary four different internal voltage levels. This reduces the comlexity and bill of materials (BoM) costs. An NXP chipset was used for the previous PAN9026 WiFi Bluetooth combo module.
Transmission power calibration data, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth system parameters for CE RED, FCC and ISED regions are pre-stored on the module’s one-time-programmable memory during production, which means that only one part number is needed for the three different regions.
“The 802.11ac capable, simultaneous and independent operation of the two standards enables high data throughput and low-power operation,” said Tomislav Tipura from Panasonic Industry Europe in Ottobrunn, Germany.
In terms of security, the PAN9028 complies with the IEEE 802.11i standard and comprises AES cryptography, CCMP as well as other established mechanisms. Using the integrated module cuts testing, calibration and certification efforts for faster time to market.
