PAN1780AT (nRF52840)


The PAN1780AT is a Bluetooth® 5.3 Low Energy Module based on the Nordic nRF52840 single-chip controller. The Bluetooth® 5.3 features enable a higher symbol rate of 2 Mbps using the high-speed LE 2M PHY. The PAN1780AT comes with AT Command Stack by BlueRadios.

Some features of the AT Stack

  • Bluetooth 5.3 support – 2Mbps and Long Range PHY support, extended advertising packets, LE Secure Connections pairing.
  • Support for up to 8 dBm output power.
  • BlueRadios Serial Port throughput up to 50kBps.
  • Single mode modules can now be connected to 5 devices simultaneously (1 as a peripheral and 4 as a central).
  • Configurable MTU up to 247 bytes.
  • USB and NFC support.
  • Over-the-Air Firmware Update (DFU) service.

The PAN1780AT uses a proprietary GATT profile developed by BlueRadios to stream data; it is not an official Bluetooth profile. BlueRadios serial port implementation simplifies the user experience, allowing users to stream data in a similar way to the official Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP) on BR/EDR devices.

Low Energy Protocol Stack


The Bluetooth Low Energy protocol stack is designed similarly to the Bluetooth Classic stack, with a controller layer at the bottom, followed by a host layer, and finally the profile and application layers. The GAP and GATT layers and above are the only layers where only the user takes care of. The GAP layer controls device discovery, advertising and connections. The GATT layer handles the exchanging of data. The PAN1780AT countains a full stack all the way up to the application layer as seen below. The AT Application Programming Interface (API) contains all the necessary commands to enable the user to develop a fully-functional Bluetooth Low Energy application, quickly and easily.
