February 20, 2018 ECD Staff

Red Pitaya, the company that is revolutionalising the test and measurement world with its STEMlab credit-card-sized multi-function, open-source, and reconfigurable instrument, is exhibiting with its German distributor, Trenz, on booth 3-401 at the Embedded World exhibition and conference, Nuremberg Messe, Germany, February 27th to March 1st.

More than a product, STEMlab is a test and measurement environment that includes a board, an application marketplace and a source code library, all of which foster collaboration and ultimately unleash the inventiveness of users. Users – which vary from small student teams all the way up to large multi-national corporations – have described STEMlab as ‘the Swiss Army PenKnife for engineers’. STEMlab is designed to be a low-cost alternative to many expensive measurement and control instruments and can function as an Oscilloscope, Logic Analyser, Signal Generator, Spectrum Analyzer and much more.

Red Pitaya is a privately-owned company established in 2013 which span off from Instrumentation Technologies Inc, the leading company designing and building high performance instruments for particle accelerators. With the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign, deep engineering background and passionate, innovative individuals the company is changing the test and measurement market. As a confirmation of its innovative approach Red Pitaya was awarded the prestigious Frost & Sullivan Global Electronic Test & Measurement Tools New Product Innovation Award in 2014.

STEMlab is based on a dual core ARM Cortex A9 + Xilinx Zynq 7010 FPGA system-on-chip (SoC), which features a dual core processor and FPGA logic, enabling software and hardware programming. This is coupled with very accurate high-end ADCs. Customizable at the FPGA and CPU levels, STEMlab can process real-world signals. Red Pitaya has also thought hard about the design of STEMlab. For instance, the credit-card-sized board features front-end input and output connectors that have a curved design, making it as small as possible and eliminating the need for other adapter boards).

Comments CEO Rok Mesar: “Our vision is to be a global leader in high performance embedded digital signal processing in open source test & measurement application areas and to build a large community of people who share our passion for electronics.”
