I am attempting the find the best solution for PoEing the Pi2, and this post How do I modify my Raspberry Pi to be powered over PoE?
was extremely helpful.
[I am trying to create a single box, single plug, solution, which means not using the micro USB jack, to avoid wires hanging out. I've successfully used the TP-Link splitter soldered to PP2 and PP5, but it takes up a lot of space, meaning a bigger case, and I still have to create a hole for the splitter's RJ45 jack, and anchor the TP card solidly above the Pi. The Xtronix HAT is elegant, but delivers 1.5A when I need 2 or more.]
On answer in particular to the post cited above (from Kuma Ober) had this tantalizing paragraph:
"A less hacky solution would be to find a PoE magjack with the same mechanical outline and pinout, and solder it in place of the original magjack. PoE magjacks can have built-in rectifiers, requiring only 2 pins to pass the power to the PoE supply - thus requiring only 8 pins total (6 for data, 2 for power). Such 8 pin magjacks do in fact exist."
So is there a magjack that is compatible, mechanically and electronically, with the Pi, at least for the 6 data lines? The power lines would obviously have to pass through an additional PoE card.
Thanks in advance,
