Demonstration kit DC1843B is an 8-port Ethernet Alliance™ certified IEEE 802.3at Type 2 power sourcing equipment (PSE) composed of a DC1842B daughter card and DC1680B motherboard. The kit is used for evaluation of the LTC4290B and LTC4271 PSE chipset. Up to 8 powered devices (PDs) can be connected and powered from this system using a single power supply. A DC590 is connected to the DC1843 for I2C interfacing with QuikEval™. This demonstration manual provides a Quick Start Procedure, a DC1842B overview, a DC1680B overview, schematics, and layout printouts. Refer to the Layout Guide for Demonstration Circuit 1842B when laying out the LTC4290B/LTC4271 circuit. Contact Analog Devices for this document.
The DC1842B has increased surge protection over the DC1842A. The DC1680B uses discrete Ethernet transformers while the DC1680A has an integrated 12-port RJ45 jack.
