The simultaneous and independent operation of the two standards enables high data rates (802.11n) and low-power operation (Bluetooth Low Energy). Integrated power management, a fast dual-core CPU, 802.11i security standard support, as well as high-speed data interfaces deliver the performance for the speed, reliability, and quality requirements of next generation products.
Tx power calibration data and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth system parameters are already pre-stored on the one-time-programmable memory of the PAN9026 during production at Panasonic. This simplifies and speeds up the certification process. Using a module reduces design, test, and calibration effort resulting in reduced time-to-market compared to discrete solutions. Panasonic anticipates applications such as Smart Energy and home gateways, managing multiple devices and appliances.
