Panasonic Industrial Co. announced the appointment of Digi-Key as an authorized distributor for its line of RF modules, including the PAN802154 wireless communication module supporting the 802.15.4 radio standard and the Zigbee specification. The Panasonic module is designed for sensing, monitoring and control applications for home automation and industrial control.

Panasonic's PAN802154 module is a low data rate/low power communication device operating in the ISM 2.4GHz band. The module uses Freescale's 802.15.4 transceiver (MC13193), microcontroller (GT60) and is licensed to use Freescale Zigbee protocol stack layer software. The PAN802154 has an onboard RS-232 interface IC and two onboard printed antennae that are etched on both sides of the board. The PAN802154 is shipped ready to download Freescale's 802.15.4 PHY/MAC layer and the Zigbee protocol layer.

"We are very pleased to partner with Digi-Key in the expansion of our existing product lines," said Tony Komon, director of Panasonic's component division. "Together with Panasonic's components and sales and marketing resources, we will be better positioned to provide our customers in North America with an offering of products and services."
