Red Pitaya has had a strong impact on the test and measurement market with its range of high- performance instruments that are open-source and as such provide an affordable alternative to many expensive measurement and control instruments. Companies like Bosch, Apple, NASA, Siemens, HIGHVOLT and many others trust Red Pitaya's products for their performance, versatility and ability to be customized.

In 2022 Red Pitaya goes multi-channel. Applications like medical and industrial imaging (MRI and ultrasound systems), nondestructive testing, RADAR/LIDAR, phased array antennas, readout of scientific multichannel detectors, multi-channel SDR receivers or power grid monitoring require multi-channel signal acquisition and generation solutions that can become very costly, as the price grows rapidly with each added channel. -This year Red Pitaya will change this by launching two new solutions – the STEMlab 125-14 X-Channel System will enable users to the adjust number of channels required to their own needs, and a 4 RF Input single-board test and measurement platform that will fulfill the needs of multi-channel applications.

The STEMlab 125-14 X-Channel System is designed for applications that require multiple channels for RF signal acquisition or generation. It consists of multiple STEMlab 125-14 devices that have synchronized clocks and triggers and comes with software that supports multi-channel streaming of input and output signals from/to a client PC over a 1Gbit ethernet interface. The X-Channel System launches in June 2022.

The STEMlab 125-14 4-Input system is based on the STEMlab 125-14 model, but instead of 2 RF inputs and 2 RF output channels it offers 4 input channels running at 125 Msps / 14bit, comes with Zynq7020 and has improved noise and cross-talk performance. The STEMlab 125-14 4-Input will be available in September 2022.

Mateja Lampe, CEO comments: “There are several medical, telecommunications and automotive applications that require multi-channel RF signal processing solutions and that play a huge role in improving the quality and safety of our lives and the products we use. At Red Pitaya we believe that by providing more affordable multi-channel solutions to the market we will help researchers and industry solve such challenging problems faster and more efficiently.”

About Red Pitaya:

Red Pitaya is a company established in 2013, that is revolutionising the test and measurement market by pioneering the move from closed, fixed-functionality instruments to multifunction, open-source software-defined instruments able to satisfy a broad spectrum of customers in different market segments  Its first product ,  STEMlab, a credit-card-sized, multi-function, open-source and reconfigurable instrument is -a low-cost alternative to expensive measurement and control instruments and can function as an oscilloscope, logic analyser, signal generator, spectrum analyzer and much more.  STEMlab  is a test and measurement environment that includes a board, an application marketplace and a source code library.  Users from small student teams all the way up to large multi-national corporations describe STEMlab as ‘the Swiss Army knife for engineers’. Since introducing STEMlab, Red Pitaya has launched SIGNALlab 250-12, aimed at demanding industrial and research applications, SDRlab, developed specifically for software-definied radio and more demanding RF applications, plus a range of STEMlab accessories, cases and heatsinks.
