PoE Daughter card Option?
#1
By the looks of it the Pine64 boards don't support this, but I wanted to bring it up in discussion.

Have you guys thought about having the Pine64 boards be able to interface with a PoE 802.3af/at daughter card?

My hope would be that if the cost of the board can stay roughly the same, but be able to interface with a PoE 802.3af/at daughter card for those interested, this would greatly increase the board's versatility.

I for one would absolutely love this.

The best way still factor in the PoE power circuit and redesign the Pine A64 board.

At current stage, you no need to design a daughter card, just use a PoE splitter.

I will do something like a TP-LINK TL-POE10R paired with a POE switch like a TP-LINK TL-SF1008P or a 802.3af injector and to convert to a micro USB use something like this http://tinyurl.com/usb2m.
 
Note: I have no affiliation with TP-LINK, but have used these devices in the past and they worked well.

We have team up with one PoE splitter vendor and custom made one design for Pine64 (also can be use for RPi) with proper microUSB connector and output 5V 2A. This is 802.3af compliance and will be available on backerkit.
