TI Demonstrates 26-Watt Power over Ethernet Controller

Texas Instruments will demonstrate a 26-watt power over Ethernet controller at the ASIS Conference in San Diego, that will allow Ethernet-powered devices, such as IP surveillance cameras, WiMAX access points and conference IP phones, to use twice as much power from a standard Ethernet cable, without the need of an AC line. To quote the press release-

TI said its 8-pin, TPS2376-H controller contains all of the features needed to develop an IEEE 802.3af-compliant powered device with safety features including a programmable, 600-mA current limit with thermal shutdown, auto-retry and fault protection.
