This is an Obsolete Application Note
The document AN52478 - Designing an External Host Application for Cypress's Powerline Communication IC CY8CPLC10 has been marked as obsolete. The obsolete version of this application note is still available with the below description but may not be complete or valid any longer. If you have any questions or require support in regards to the below application note content, please click here and create a technical support case.
AN52478 describes how to configure the device CY8CPLC10 with a microcontroller, so the user will be able to transmit and receive data over the powerline with an external microcontroller. The CY8CPLC10 is an integrated Powerline Communication chip with the Powerline Modem PHY, Powerline Network Protocol Stack, and I2C interface. An External Host can control CY8CPLC10 to communicate with different nodes on the powerline.
 
Introduction

The Cypress PLC family is a single chip solution for powerline communication (PLC). It has a robust FSK modem with a user-friendly powerline network protocol. Cypress’s PLC solution and a simple powerline coupling circuit create low-cost communication interface using the existing power lines.
