Formed by industry-leading networking components, IC andsystem companies; the PoETec Consortium is intended to create an ecosystem to enhance the growth of the Power over Ethernet marketplace. The PoETec members will be defining and adopting interface specifications to enable rapid deployment of next generation IEEE® 802.3 Power over Ethernet standards based equipment. The PoETec consortium will make its interface specification available for public download and will provide implementation rights to all suppliers and system vendors who join the organization.  Everyone has full access to their completed specifications. The PoETec members are the leading networking components, IC and system companies currently involved in the PoE market.  Membership includes a royalty-free and non-exclusive worldwide license for use of all PoETec specifications. 



SARTAAkros Silicon is a member of the Sacramento Area Regional Technology Alliance (SARTA).

The Sacramento Area Regional Technology Alliance (SARTA) is a tech-focused 501(c)(3) corporation established in 2001 to support entrepreneurial programs, companies and technology investment throughout Butte, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties.



IEEEIEEE approved the creation of the IEEE802.3at DTE Power Enhancements Task Force in September 2005. Akros Silicon continues to be a key contributor to this effort.

The IEEE 802.3af standard defines the specifications to deliver power over standard Ethernet cables, details can be found at:

The 802.3at standard should extend the 802.3af power delivery and port-level resiliency capabilities, which would largely extend the number of applications that could benefit from Power over Ethernet. Details can be found at:
