CY3274 Programmable High Voltage Powerline Communication Development Kit

Last Updated: 
Oct 08, 2014

This development kit is for High voltage development kit for CY8CPLC20 and works with Voltage (110-240V AC) power lines. It has RJ45 connector to use with ICE debugger, RS232- COM port for communication and header for attaching LCD card.


The CY3274 Programmable High Voltage Powerline Communication Development Kit is a tool to do system design using the ability of the CY8CPLC20 devices to transmit data up to 2400 bps over High Voltage (110V-240V AC) Powerlines. This kit is compliant with FCC(North America) and CENELEC (Europe) standards.

Note: Cypress recommends that a user purchases two CY3274 kits to setup a two-node PLC subsystem for evaluation and development. Run PLC Control Panel GUI as Administrator in Windows 7.


  • User friendly PLC Control Panel Application available on kit CD
  • CY8CPLC20-OCD – 100-pin TQFP on-chip debug (OCD) device that allows quick design and debug of a PLC application. The CY8CPLC20 100-pin TQFP is available for debug purposed only. For production quantities, CY8CPLC20 is available in 28-pin SSOP and 48-pin QFN packages.
