AN54416 describes how to use the Powerline Transceiver (PLT) User Module on the CY8CPLC20 device for PLC applications. The application note also includes a spreadsheet to estimate the power consumption by CY8CPLC20 and focuses on four code examples. The first example provides steps to develop an example project to communicate between two nodes on the powerline. The second example discusses how to develop a UART Host interface for CY8CPLC20. The third example discusses how to develop an I2C Host interface for CY8CPLC20. The fourth shows how to use CY8CPLC20 with average low-power consumption of less than 50 mW.
