The latest standards for secure networking

Brought to you by CW (Cambridge Wireless)

A workshop run in collaboration with Anglia that will present an overview of Panasonic's bluetooth and wi-fi product range, accompanied by a technical presentation on the new embedded wi-fi module, the PAN9520.

Registration for this event is now closed.

About the event

In this 60-minute session, Panasonic, will provide a brief overview of their Bluetooth and Wi-Fi product range. Following this, there will be a technical presentation of the NEW PAN9520 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n embedded Wi Fi module is based on Espressif’s ESP32-S2 microcontroller that includes the powerful Xtensa® 32-bit LX7 CPU.

An integrated chip antenna, and QSPI memory enable the module to be used in a variety of stand-alone or host-controlled applications. The integrated crystal ensures connection performance over full temperature range and lifetime. The PAN9520 combines a high performance CPU, high sensitivity wireless radio, baseband (BB) processor, Medium Access Controller (MAC), encryption unit, ROM bootloader, chip-internal SRAM, and module-internal QSPI flash and PSRAM. Features as CCMP, TKIP, WAPI, WEP, BIP, and an AES accelerator enable the usage of secure data connections.

Parallel support of access point and station mode allows easy setup of simultaneous Wi Fi connections from the module to smart devices and home network router.
