Analog Devices Inc. LT4321 Demo Board DC2911A is an IEEE 802.3bt compliant and LTPoE++ interoperable Power over Ethernet (PoE) Powered Device (PD). It features the LT4293 PD interface controller and the LT4321 PoE ideal diode bridge controller. The LT4293 provides LTPoE++, IEEE 802.3af (PoE, Type 1), IEEE 802.3at (PoE+, Type 2), and IEEE 802.3bt (PoE++, Type 3 and 4) compliant interfacing. The device utilizes an external, low RDS(ON) (30mΩ typical) N-channel MOSFET for the Hot Swap function to improve efficiency.
The DC2911A accepts up to 90W of delivered power from a PSE via the RJ45 connector (J1) or a local 48V DC power supply using the auxiliary supply input. When both supplies are connected, the auxiliary supply input has priority over the PoE input.
