Power Switch ICs - POE/LAN
Power Switch ICs are integrated circuits that are used in various networked applications to control the flow of power. They are commonly used in Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Local Area Network (LAN) applications. They can be used to provide protection from overloads, ensuring that the equipment is not damaged or overloaded, and to provide remote power management capabilities. They can also be used to monitor power usage, allowing operators and administrators to more closely control power usage and safety. Common uses for Power Switch ICs include switching Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) ports, providing Auto-MDI/MDIX, and providing power monitoring and control for devices attached to the network.
