The PAN1770 is a Bluetooth 5.1 Low Energy (LE) module based on the nRF52840 single chip controller and the antennaless version of the flagship PAN1780.
The Bluetooth 5 features additionally a higher symbol rate of 2 Mbps using the high-speed LE 2M PHY or a significantly longer range using the LE coded PHY at 500 kb/s or 125 kb/s. Furthermore, the new LE advertising extensions allow for much larger amounts of data to be broadcast in connectionless scenarios. An output power of up to 8 dBm and the industry leading sensitivity of the nRF52840 in combination with the LE coded PHY make the module very attractive in applications, where a long range is required. In addition, the ultra-low current consumption of the PAN1770 makes the module an ideal choice for battery powered devices. With Cortex® M4F processor, 256 kB RAM and the build-in 1 MB flash memory the PAN1770 can easily be used in standalone mode, thereby eliminating the need for an external processor, saving complexity, space, and cost. The PAN1770 also supports Type 2 Near Field Communication (NFC A) for use in simplified pairing and payment solutions (external antenna required).
