UCTRONICS’ PoE HAT Mini Adds Power-over-Ethernet to a Raspberry Pi in Tiny Footprint

Designed to leave most GPIO pins free and not block the SoC, UCTRONICS’ PoE HAT Mini is an interesting add-on for Power-over-Ethernet.

UCTRONICS has launched a pair of alternatives to the Raspberry Pi Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) HAT, and while one is a near-copy the second is considerably smaller: the PoE HAT Mini.

The original Raspberry Pi PoE HAT was unveiled three years ago alongside the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. Designed to simplify cabling for remote installations, the add-on connects to the Raspberry Pi’s general-purpose input/output (GPIO) header and a second dedicated header found only on the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and later Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, and allows the device to be powered using an Ethernet cable and a compatible switch or power injector.
