Power Over Ethernet Blends Distributed Power and Data Management

Version 1

    388i5F0E03F3003C1E7CIn this COTS Journal article, ADI Engineering's Founder and CTO Steve Yates writes about how the newly ratified 25 watt IEEE 802.3at Power Over Ethernet (PoE+) standard is poised to bring substantial improvements in cost, reliability, installation flexibility and manageability to embedded military and commercial applications.


    When combined with low-power, extended temperature Intel Atom SBCs like ADI's Cinnamon Bay SBC, PoE+ enables a new breed of "no new wires" embedded devices with only a single Ethernet cable providing all the needed power and data connectivity.
