Silicon Laboratories introduce new VoIP and IT controller of optimal power mode
Silicon Laboratories, being the prominent industrial player in different VoIP and IT applications such as mixed-signal ICs, has rolled out innovative single-port PoE controller (Power over Ethernet) that ensures cost effective "plug-and-play" simplicity to integrated power sourcing equipment (PSE) utilities.
New product has designation Si3462 controller, and it massively mitigates the associated challenges of setting PSE endpoints, for instance, residential gateways, optic media converters, surveillance networks that connect to a broad spectrum of powered tolls such as VoIP telephones, video cameras, keypads, various storage and WiFi availability points. Powered devices (PD) speed up the global proliferation within office/home office (SOHO), as well as SMB deployments, backing up the hot need for convenient intuitive use single-port inbuilt PoE/PoE+ PSE applications to enable dedicated end-firmware. The continuous expansion of the IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standard and demand to backup PD applications that normally designed for up to 30 watts, manufacturers are seeking PSE controllers that ensure flexible power management and monitoring, associated with the effective standards-compliance and quality compromising. In list of available turnkey solutions Si3462 controller is a complete affordable single-port PoE and PoE+ PSE application. When collaborated with the innovative Classification Optional Mode, the Si3462 removes all the operational requirements for up to 10 particular components, minimizing the total deployed hardware cost for embedded PSE to just as literally couple of dollars. In this operational arrangement Si3462 controller finds out when a valid PD is connected at the opposite end of the wire and immediately utilizes a preconfigured amount of power. This mode cuts cost and ensures ultimate simplicity for engines that are not relayed with proprietary systems operating with fixed arrays of PDs. The Si3462 controller's unique taxonomy prevents the need for a specific MCU and software, making system integration as the convenient intuitive process, alleviating software deployment’s costs and risks, as well as facilitating path to consumer. All the operational features of the Si3462, such as paired device's detection, classifying, power-up, fault tracking, securing and disconnecting procedures all run in accordance with devices’ configurations without the involvement of a host processor or MCU. The Si3462 permanently monitors the power provided to PDs, endorsing every PD by safe operations and within the framework of all IEEE-demanded PoE/PoE+ characteristics. "The new Si3462 controller ensures the overall deployment of PoE+ in embedded PSE systems much more convenient and cheap than ever, with simultaneous freeing hands of operators from the adherence to controversial standards and difficulties associated with other PSE applications," stated Jim Judkins, director for Access products at Silicon Labs. "PSE can now be implemented with plug-and-play features, removing the need for host MCUs and relayed software." The Si3462 controller ensures long list of easy-to-use, pin-selectable operating procedures that enable the completely versatile use of the firmware in both PSE endpoint and middle-legged applications. Disregarding to fact, that solution primarily was designed for PSE endpoint products, controller also easily and organically supports midspan power injectors broadly deployed in enterprise LANs.
