PoE Powered Devices (PD) ICs 

Our PD ICs, available with or without integrated Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) controllers, are compact solutions for converting Power over Ethernet (PoE) input power into one or more output voltages in a PD. Our IdealBridge™ dual-pack MOSFET-based full-bridge rectifier protects against reverse-polarity connections while reducing power consumption and space requirements and improving improving thermal performance in a variety of applications, including:  

  • WLAN access points
  • 5G small cells
  • Network cameras
  • LED lighting
  • IoT appliances
  • IP telephones

As a pioneer in PoE technology, Microchip is the only supplier of PoE PD ICs, PoE Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) ICs, PoE systems (midspans/injectors and switches) and test equipment.

Key Benefits of Our PoE PD ICs:

  • Offer the highest integration level and lowest total BOM cost
  • Leverage a mixed portfolio of devices that can be used in indoor, outdoor and industrial applications
  • Meet the high powering needs of 2-pair and 4-pair PDs including IEEE® 802.11ac/ax access points, information kiosks, POS terminals, thin clients, 5G small cells, industrial automation systems and connected LED luminaires/sensors
  • Comply with industry standards such as IEEE 802.3af/at and Power-over-HDBaseT (PoH)
