Create Highly Secure BLE Connections and Extend Battery Life Using NFC

Introducing Panasonic’s Embedded Bluetooth Low Energy and NFC Combination RF Module, the PAN1761 Series!

PAN1761 supports both Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) 4.1 and NFC – NFC Forum Type 3 compliant tag – based on leading edge Toshiba SOC. The unique configuration of the PAN1761 allows NFC to wake up BLE from standby using an NFC field and automatically initiate a Bluetooth connection. Highly secure Bluetooth connections are created using NFC to exchange link keys. Bluetooth LE applications with extended battery life are possible as a result of zero power consumption in standby mode. A remote device may independently create a wake up signal with neither host control nor local battery consumption.  Embedded microcontroller access and 32KB EEPROM is available for autonomous stand-alone operation.
