DALLAS (April 25, 2005) - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) will demonstrate its latest Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology for Ethernet switches, mid-spans, IP phones and wireless LAN access points at the Networld+Interop (N+I) 2005 conference in Las Vegas, May 3-5 (Booth #676). Additionally, TI's Bill Carney will discuss new developments in WLAN during a panel session.
Highlighting its growing portfolio of innovative PoE solutions, TI will show how its second generation TPS2375 PoE powered device controller efficiently manages the power in today´s market-leading IP phones. In addition, Molex Incorporated and Phihong will demonstrate PoE solutions enabled by TI´s TPS2384 quad-port and TPS2383A octal-port power managers for power source equipment (PSE) systems. Molex will demonstrate its recently announced HyperJackTM 1000 Gigabit PoE module, which incorporates the TPS2384 to enable power management functions within an RJ-45 connector. Phihong will demonstrate mid-span and PoE power supply equipment designed with the TPS2383A.
