Re: Signal conditioning chips

Yep. It got stolen by the computer industry and is now called Power Over Ethernet. It isn't actually using data signal for power, it just uses the principle that you can run DC and AC on the same cable and separate the two at the other end with a capacitor. POE uses separate cores but it uses the same current driven technique. I love it when rock and roll infects the rest of the world !

Either way, power is power. As long as you what you suck is less than what will cause the receiving end to fall over, you are good to go.
