Cypress's Powerline Communication (PLC) solution are the world’s first truly programmable products for data communication over existing power lines. Leveraging the programmable analog and digital resources of the PSoC® programmable system-on-a-chip architecture, the new PLC solution integrates multiple functions beyond communication, such as power measurement, system management and LCD drive. In addition to its flexibility and integration, the new solution offers industry-leading reliability with greater than 97% packet success rates without retries and 100% success rates with retries built into the solution’s coding. The solution offers the flexibility to communicate over high-voltage and low-voltage power lines for lighting and industrial control, home automation, automatic meter reading and smart energy management applications.  More information is available at
