Power over Ethernet (POE) FeatherWing being crowdfunded by Silicognition #Feather #POE @xorbit1

Patrick Van Oosterwijck and Silicognition are preparing to crowdfund the power over Ethernet FeatherWing seen in the recent Adafruit Take Flight with Feather contest on

Per, the ‘Wing will provide support for a 4W draw over Power over Ethernet (PoE) — allowing Feather-based devices to receive power and network connectivity over a single cable.

The PoE FeatherWing supports IEEE 802.3at Class 1, Mode A and Mode B Power over Ethernet (PoE) with up to 4W available to connected devices. The Ethernet connectivity itself is provided by a WIZnet W5500 Ethernet controller, allowing for full compatibility with any libraries and software designed for the non-PoE Adafruit Ethernet FeatherWing, while a Microchip 24AA02E48 means each unit has a guaranteed globally-unique MAC. The design even incorporates a solder point to enable Giant Board support, without the need for the usual IRQ fly-wire connection.

The PoE FeatherWing is due to land on Crowd Supply soon; pricing has yet to be confirmed.
