Power Sourcing Equipment / Power over Ethernet

Next generation power-over-ethernet (PoE) systems can deliver up to 100 W to each powered device. Large LCD screens, wireless hot-spots and pan-tilt-zoom CCTV cameras are placing increased demands on PoE power sourcing equipment (PSE).

Design considerations

System capability must include ‘soft-start’ procedures, resilience to short-circuits, together with optimized thermal management and power density.

Superior protection and performance, such as low RDS(on) parameters, can be achieved by using dedicated PoE MOSFETs. They are designed specifically for the latest high-power PSE controllers.
