The LTC4274 is a single power sourcing equipment controller designed for use in IEEE 802.3 Type 1 and Type 2 (high power) compliant Power over Ethernet systems. External power MOSFETs enhance system reliability and minimize channel resistance, cutting power dissipation and eliminating the need for heatsinks even at Type 2 power levels. External power components also allow use at very high power levels while remaining otherwise compatible with the IEEE standard. 80V-rated port pins provide robust protection against external faults.
The LTC4274 includes advanced power management features, including current and voltage readback and programmable ICUT and ILIM thresholds. Available C libraries simplify software development; an optional AUTO pin mode provides fully IEEE-compliant standalone operation with no software required. Proprietary 4-point PD detection circuitry minimizes false PD detection while supporting legacy phone operation. Midspan operation is supported with built-in 2-event classification and backoff timing. Host communication is via a 1MHz I2C serial interface.
The LTC4274 is available in a 5mm × 7mm QFN package that significantly reduces board space compared with competing solutions.

Evaluation Kits (2)
Demonstration circuit 1567B features the LTC4274, a single power sourcing equipment (PSE) controller designed for use in IEEE 802.3 Type 1 and Type 2 (high power) compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) systems. The LTC4274 is configured in the DC1567B as a midspan power injector where data comes in from an existing network system and out, along with power, to a powered device (PD). The LTC4274 autonomously detects and classifies a PD, turns power on to the port, and disconnects port power without the need for a microcontroller. A two second backoff timer supports the midspan configuration. A 55V nomical supply is recommended to power the demo board.
