PANIC, the PAnoramic Near-Infrared Camera for Calar Alto, is one of the next generation instruments for this observatory. In order to cover a field of view of approximately 30 arcmin, PANIC uses a mosaic of four 2k x 2k HAWAII-2RG arrays from Teledyne. This document presents the preliminary results of the basic characterization of the mosaic. The performance of the system as a whole, as well as the in-house readout electronics and software capabilities will also be briefly discussed.
