Bluetooth® is a networking standard designed to meet IEEE 802.15.1 and administered by the Bluetooth® Special Interest Group (BT SIG). Conceived as a 2.4GHz wireless standard to replace wired headsets in 1999, Bluetooth® has grown in both scope and capability. By far it is the most prolific wireless standard today adding over 1,000,000 nodes to the network every day, in cell phones, PC’s, consumer and medical electronics applications and many more.
Since its release Bluetooth® Dual Mode and Bluetooth®  Low Energy enabled products are flooding the market. Applications are likely to be in the smartphone accessories, sport and leisure equipment and medical and health care area.
With short project deadlines, a module design enables you to be the first in the market, quickly. Panasonic evaluations kits provide an easy to use and low-cost platform for evaluating and prototyping your design.

  • Bluetooth Dual ModeBluetooth Dual Mode devices receive data sent from Bluetooth BR/EDR and Bluetooth low energy functionality devices.
  • Bluetooth Low EnergyBluetooth low energy functionality reduces power consumption down to a tenth of a Bluetooth BR/EDR device.
