PAN9028 (88W8987)


Introducing Panasonic’s Wi-Fi 5 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz and Bluetooth 5.2 Combo module, the PAN9028! 

The 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 (LE), specifically designed for highly integrated and cost-effective applications. The simultaneous and independent operation of the two standards enables high data rates (802.11ac) and low-power operation (Bluetooth Low Energy). Integrated power management, a fast dual-core CPU, 802.11i security standard support and high-speed data interfaces deliver the performance for the speed, reliability and quality requirements of next generation products. Tx power calibration data and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth system parameters are pre-stored on the one-time-programmable memory of the PAN9028 during production at Panasonic. This simplifies passing the certification process for PAN9028 customers enabling faster time-to-market. An optional integrated PMIC ensures that only one supply voltage is required for the otherwise necessary four different internal voltage levels. This greatly simplifies hardware design and reduces BOM costs.
