Dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5 module

Panasonic Industry has unveiled the PAN9028 Wi-Fi radio module which comes with integrated Bluetooth wireless functionality.

Designed to address the need for highly-integrated and more cost-effective applications, Panasonic Industry's PAN9028 is 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. It is based on the NXP Semiconductors 88W8987 wireless chipset.

The 802.11ac capable, simultaneous and independent operation of the two standards enables high data throughput and low-power operation, according to Panasonic Industry.

The PAN9028 supports download data rates of up to 433 Mbit/s – and optionally includes a power management IC, which allows simpler hardware design and reducing BOM costs. Tx 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, so only one part number is needed for the three different regions.

In terms of security, the PAN9028 complies with the IEEE 802.11i standard and comprises AES cryptography, CCMP as well as other established mechanisms.
