We have an X10 E-block so it should be possible.
However Steve who would know the details is away on Holiday at the moment.

Hopefully he can give more details on how to do it when he returns.

We have created an X-10 E-Block (EB-028) which provides the electronic interface between a microcontroller and a TTL-level X-10 transceiver (eg, the XM10U, XM10E and TW523). In addition to this, we offer code examples and suggestions to help you write code for this E-Block (in C and ASM). We may also produce a component for FlowCode if there is demand for it.

However, only our v3 dev board is directly compatible with E-Blocks, but we have made an E-Blocks adaptor (EB-009) for the v2 board. So if you wanted to interface an XM10U (or equivalent) to our v2 dev board, you would need both the X-10 E-Block and the adaptor board.

Hope this info helps.
