Olimex ESP32-POE2 board offers up to 25W for power-intensive applications

ESP32 POE2

The Bulgarian hardware manufacturer, Olimex, has designed a new ESP32 board with Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality. The Olimex ESP32-POE2 board builds on the original ESP32-POE and features the same ESP32-WROOM-32 microcontroller module with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. However, it supports up to 25W power delivery from the Ethernet port via PoE and can be used in more demanding projects. The Olimex ESP32-POE2 board features a low-power design and consumes only 200µA in deep sleep mode. The board can be powered via USB-C, Ethernet, or Li-Po battery. The Ethernet interface is built on Texas Instruments’ TPS2378PW chip with IEEE 802.3at classification and legacy PoE support. Powering with PoE requires at least 37V DC for seamless operation. Two proprietary connectors (UEXT and EXT1) can be used to add sensors and other modules and expand the board’s operation for IoT projects. Users can select between 24V/0.75A or 12V/1.5A power output, with a […]

Embedded Open Source Summit 2024 schedule – Embedded Linux, Zephyr OS, and Real-time Linux

Embedded Open Source Summit 2024

The Embedded Open Source Summit 2024 (EOSS 2024) will take place on April 16-18 and the Linux Foundation has already announced the schedule with conference sessions, lightning talks, and birds of a feather (BoF) sessions covering embedded Linux, Zephyr OS, and real-time (RT) Linux. While I won’t be attending in person, I still find it interesting to check out the schedule as we may learn more about the current status of embedded Linux. So I’ve created my own little virtual schedule out of the available talks. Tuesday, April 16 – Day 1, Embedded Open Source Summit 2024 9:05 – 9:45 – No, It’s (Still) Never Too Late to Upstream Your Legacy Linux-Based Platforms by Neil Armstrong, Linaro Nearly 7 years ago, Neil already spoke about this subject in Berlin, and it’s still very true. Do you maintain or used to maintain a Linux-based board or SoC off-tree? Then there are […]
