Future Electronics Bullseye Evaluation Board

A wireless IoT node solution based on the Panasonic PAN9520 and other innovative components from key supplier partners

Bullseye is a new development board designed by Future Electronics’ System Design Center engineers, aiming at wireless IoT node solutions. An innovative new solution, it showcases the Panasonic PAN9520, an embedded 2.4 GHz ISM band 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi module that features a highly integrated controller to be used in stand-alone or host-controlled applications.

The Bullseye evaluation board enables systems design engineers to quickly evaluate and integrate Wi-Fi communication and functionality into their IoT product without comprehensive knowledge of wireless hardware and software designs.

In addition to the PAN9520 embedded chip antenna, the Bullseye board features:

  • Four selectable external antennas from TE Connectivity for extended range with different use cases or performance evaluations
  • An MPS battery charger and power solutions to enable battery-powered wireless IoT node designs
  • Extensive user interfaces including USB, inductive position sensing from Renesas and a mikroBUS™ extension interface

The Bullseye evaluation platform is well equipped for many wireless IoT application developments.
