Akros Silicon Inc. (Sunnyvale, CA) has announced the immediate availability of the AS1860, the newest member of the company’s GreenEdge family of system-on-a-chip (SoC) energy management ICs. The AS1860, equipped with Akros’ proprietary GreenEdge digital isolation technology, is uniquely suited to support deployments of 60 W and above Power over Ethernet (PoE) Powered Device (PD) applications such as thin clients, monitors, industrial Ethernet, IPTV, building management, Industrial Networking and many other high power designs. Features include:

  • Dynamic power-level adjustment (to 60 W and above) without using optocouplers and their associated complex compensation networks.
  • Higher-power conversion efficiency due to communication across the isolation barrier.
  • More accurate output-voltage sensing using a resistor-divider sensor on the secondary side.
  • RoHS-compliance.
