The new IEEE 802.3bt standard has introduced the capability for designers to utilize PoE for high-power applications (up to 90W at source and 71.3 at input). The below videos provide insights into whether the .bt standard is right for you, but if you’re already evaluating or compliant to .bt, we’ve also shared resources to help you navigate working with non-standard PD types, response to power demotion events and more.
The Ethernet ecosystem is evolving with the introduction of the IEEE 802.3bt standard. Regardless if you’re an expert in PoE or just getting introduced to the technology, the below trainings provide a good starting point for understanding how TI’s portfolio of 802.3bt Powered Devices (PDs) and Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) Controllers can be used in traditional and emerging Ethernet applications.
Power over Ethernet technology (PoE) is an ubiquitous technology for powering Ethernet connected end equipments that may typically require licensed personnel to install, such as connected lighting, wireless access points, 5G remote radio units and more. As a standard-driven IC technology, suppliers can rest easy that IEEE 802.3 compliant portfolios offer solutions at both the source and input to loads that are fully interoperable and include many features to empower greater flexibility and reliability.
