Microsemi Corporation unvieled the new 4-port and 8-port PoE power injectors/switches of the PD691xx Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) IC family, offering the industry’s smallest form factor and lowest power dissipation. The new 4-port PD69104 and 8-port PD69108 Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) PoE Management ICs are optimized for both commercial and industrial applications, delivering power to devices ranging from video screen phones and WiMAX transmitters to pan-tilt-zoom cameras, thin-clients and laptop computers.

The PD691xx Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) ICs are the first HDBaseT-compliant solutions in the industry. HDBaseT is the latest, most advanced connectivity technology for long-distance transmission of uncompressed high-definition video, audio and power. The technology enables 5Play™ simultaneous connectivity to numerous entertainment devices over a single 100 m Cat5e (LAN) cable.

Advantages of PD691xx Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) ICs
