Molex Inc. has announced the development of its HyperJack 1000 Gigabit Power over Ethernet (PoE) module.

The multi-port module, which provides PoE management functions embedded within an RJ-45 connector, integrates magnetics that support Ethernet 10/100/1000 and high-performance power management silicon from Texas Instruments Inc.

“Customers continue to demand flexible port configurations and a migration path from non-PoE to fully integrated PoE designs,” said Vincent Eissenmenger, PoE program manager with Molex.

The module’s fully shielded connector is available in multiple port configurations, including 2-by-4 and 2-by-6. In addition, the PoE module contains up to three TI TPS2384 power management integrated circuits.

The quad-port TPS2384 power manager can support operation over the temperature range -40 to +125 C for a wide range of commercial, industrial and military uses.

Potential applications range from sophisticated enterprise systems with up to 128 ports to low-port count hub Ethernet switches for small office and home office (SOHO) applications.

The HyperJack 1000 PoE module is scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of this year.
