The POE Board offers full 802.3af, Class 3 PoE compliance with 1000BASE-T speeds, along with user-selectable external power from a 5V barrel jack. The Luxonis OAK-FFC-IMX378 12MP RGB camera module can be connected via the 26-pin FFC interface, which exposes a 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 channel directly into the Robotics Vision Core 2 on the OAK-SoM-Pro (System on Module) for processing. Data can also be streamed to a host via USB 3.1 Gen1 (Type-C). Finally, the PoE Board exposes boot selection switches, allowing the end user to boot the OAK-SoM-Pro from USB or the on-board eMMC or NOR flash.
This OAK device is built on top of the RVC2. Main features:
4 TOPS of processing power (1.4 TOPS for AI)
Run any AI model, even custom architectured/built ones - models need to be converted.
Encoding: H.264, H.265, MJPEG - 4K/30FPS, 1080P/60FPS
Object tracking: 2D and 3D tracking with ObjectTracker node

This OAK PoE camera accepts power input from he 802.3af, Class 3 PoE circuitry. It can also accect power through the on-board USB C connector - which is not exposed through the enclosure, so enclosure needs to be removed.
Booting can be accomplished from either the USB interface or from the eMMC or NOR flash on the OAK-SoM-Pro, and boot selection is configured with the DIP switch bank near the USB connector.
Interfacing with the OAK-SoM-Pro is also possible with PoE Board connector pads J5 and J8, which expose OAK-SoM-Pro auxiliary I/O and BW2099 Quad SPI, respectively. These headers are Amphenol/FCI 20021121-00010T1LF or equivalent. Please refer to the schematics for pinout information.
The reset button resets the OAK-SoM-Pro only.
The 5V LED indicates 5V power is present on the BW2098POE.
The PG LED indicates “power good” from the OAK-SoM-Pro.
The “RUN” LED indicates that the OAK-SoM-Pro is not in reset.
Caution should be taken when handling any PoE circuit board. Do not directly touch the circuitry as potentials up to and exceeding 57V may exist. Always use electronics handling best practices.
