Realizing mobile LE applications: Panasonic’s PAN1782 Bluetooth® 5.1 Low Energy Module at Rutronik

02/09/2023 Product News

Panasonic's PAN1782 leverages the long range of Bluetooth 5.1, offering a higher symbol rate of 2 Mbit/s with the high-speed LE 2M PHY, and a significantly longer range with the LE-encoded PHY at 500 kb/s or 125 kb/s. The new channel selection algorithm (CSA#2) improves performance in high interference environments. In addition, the new LE Advertising enhancements enable much larger data volumes to be transmitted in connectionless scenarios. That makes the module an excellent choice for applications in smart city, industrial mesh networks and medical. Panasonic's portfolio and the PAN1782 are available at

Based on the Nordic nRF52833 Bluetooth chip, the module supports direction finding by angle of arrival (AOA) and angle of departure (AOD) via Bluetooth. In addition, type 2 near field communication (NFC-A) is possible with the PAN1782, e. g. for simplified pairing and payment solutions.

It also impresses with extremely low power consumption of only 4.9 mA in TX and 4.7 mA in RX mode and can easily be used in standalone mode. In addition, the module supports Bluetooth Mesh, Thread and Zigbee Mesh protocols.

Additional specifications:

  • ARM® Cortex®-M4 (64 MHz) with 256 kB flash memory and 32 kB internal RAM.
  • 128-bit AES/ECB/CCM/AAR coprocessor for on-the-fly packet encryption
