American Corporation, Microchip Technology has announced the release of the first IEEE 802.3bt Power over Ethernet (PoE) to USB Type-C adapter with the highest power capability that converts both power and data while offering up to 60W USB output power via an Ethernet cable supported by PoE infrastructure.

Most of the USB-C technology, available in the markets today can provide a lot of power and transfer a lot of data, but it only extends the range of the installation to three meters from an AC outlet.

On the occasion of its launch, Iris Shuker, Director of Microchip's PoE business unit said, “This new device is ideal for easily deploying USB-C devices and providing them long-range power and data connectivity. The adapters are built using Microchip’s USB power delivery ICs and PoE chipsets and are a perfect pairing with our latest PoE injectors and midspans.” 

Talking about its features, the adapter (part number PD-USB-DP60) can accept up to 90W of PoE and convert it to 60W output over USB-C that will power most cameras, laptops, tablets, and other devices using USB-C for input power.

In addition to that, this adapter simplifies installation by reducing dependency on AC infrastructure. Without the dependency of an AC outlet, there is no longer a range limitation of three meters, and power can be delivered over 100 meters.

Microchip’s PoE to USB-C adapter can connect to a variety of PoE sources with various standards deployed. It supports newer IEEE 802.3af/at/bt standards as well as legacy PoE standards. Having a versatile adapter is crucial due to the many different implementations of PoE already installed.

Similarly, the adapter can be paired with Microchip’s cost-effective single-port and multi-port (up to 24) PoE injectors/midspans. If a lower power is needed to power the USB-C device, IEEE802.3af (15.4W) or IEEE802.3at (30W) PoE sources can be used.
