Power numbers for TLK100

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TLK100

A customer is using the TLK100 and found some descrepancies in the published power numbers on Page 69 table 9.5.1, our FAE states the number as 189mW running from 3.3V at 10Mb/s, please confirm this.

Also, we need to understand what is meant by, "from the center tap" please provide a descriptive reply of how that measurement is taken.


  • Hello Herb,

    observing  the datasheet on page 70 table 9.5.1 Active Power is indeed 189mW running from 3.3V  at 10Mb/s.

    power from the center tap is the combined power from those VDD (3.3v) supplies that i circled in the figure below.
