Product Details

The LTC4296-1 is an IEEE 802.3cg compliant five port Single-pair Power over Ethernet (SPoE) Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) controller. SPoE simplifies system design and installation with standardized power and Ethernet data over a single-pair cable. The LTC4296-1 is designed for interoperability with 802.3cg Powered Devices (PDs) in 24V or 54V systems. It delivers power using external, low RDS(ON), N-channel MOSFETs which minimize voltage drop and ensure application ruggedness.

High-side circuit breakers with foldback Analog Current Limit (ACL) provide controlled inrush and short circuit protection. An optional low-side circuit breaker protects the negative output against backfeed faults, and ground faults in non-isolated applications. PD classification and Maintain Full Voltage Signature (MFVS) ensure full operating voltage is only applied to the cable when a PD is present. SWn pins disconnect port power snubbers during detection and classification. PD initiated sleep and wakeup are supported. The WAKEUP pin supports wakeup forwarding. Telemetry, status, and software control features are accessed via a SPI bus interface with Packet Error Code (PEC) protection.

The LTC4296-1 provides a versatile SPoE PSE solution for 10BASE-T1L controllers and switches and can easily be integrated with the ADI 10BASE-T1L transceiver portfolio such as the ADIN1100 (PHY), ADIN1110 (MAC-PHY) and ADIN2111 (2-Port switch).
