Rock 5 POE HAT Available?

Any news on POE hat for the Rock 5 ?

I was told the POEat hat was good. 23W just fine for board and ssd.

Thanks. Looks like it will not fit in the case being sold now.

PoE board doesn’t fit with the currently available hear sink either

Will a raspberry pi PoE+ hat work?

Waveshare “type c” POE hat works (the 4 amp version without the display). But you have to find a thin heatsink solution and move the fan on the POE hat to the top of the board. The mounting hole from the middle of the rock5 is also not in the “standard” position for pi hats so the screw won’t fit into the spacer.

Have you gotten the fan to work? Tried all the usual ubuntu tricks but no luck so far. Even tried the RockPi4 poe-fan package but it’s missing dependencies on the R5B

The only way to get the fan to work is to purchase another fan:{"enabled"%3Atrue}

Then purchase a 2 pin Micro JST 1.25mm Male Connector:

Your only issue is that the fan is not in the correct position and potentially wont be able to take heat away from the processor

I’m going to try the Raspberry Pi poe+ hat to see if that will work as the fan has a better position and I’ll update if this works

@Sean did you manage to test the Raspberry Pi PoE+ hat?

@Ryu Rock5b dedicated PoE will be available sometime in April:

"We are working on a new PoE hat for ROCK 5B with slim design. We expect to release it in April, stay tuned. "


I have tested with ROCK5B and NVME SSD, with Raspberry Pi PoE+ Hat, and the board boots. I haven’t done any stress testing in that configuration.
