At embedded world 2023, Nina Jagodic, Marketing Manager at Red Pitaya talks to Electronic Specifier's Editor, Mick Elliott, about Red Pitaya exploration of new software.

Red Pitaya is leading a revolution in the electronics industry, pioneering the move from closed, fixed-functionality instruments to multifunction, open-source software-defined instruments that are able to satisfy broad spectrum of customers in different market segments. But where was the idea for Red Pitaya born you might think?

Red Pitaya began as a Kickstarter project in 2013, and the idea was born out of a simple need for a versatile reconfigurable instrument that could replace other expensive lab instruments. Red Pitaya is leading a revolution in the electronics industry, pioneering the move from closed, fixed-functionality instruments to multifunction, open-source software-defined instruments that are able to satisfy broad spectrum of customers in different market segments.

“In 10 years, it has evolved tremendously. Now we’re working with some of the biggest names in the industry. We call Red Pitaya the swiss army knife for engineers because it’s a very small and versatile tool that can replace a lot of more expensive lab instruments, for example you can use it as an oscilloscope, vector analyser, network analyser, LCR metre and more,” explains Nina Jagodic.

It is an open-source platform replacing bulky and expensive instruments, with many applications.

These include:

  • Oscilloscope and signal generator
  • LCR metre
  • Spectrum analyser
  • Logic analyser
  • Bode analyser
  • Vector network analyser

You can also programme Red Pitaya to your own needs as it is open source. 

At embedded world 2023, Red Pitaya is exhibiting its newest product, the STEMlab 125-14 4-Input. Instead of the usual two inputs and two outputs, this has four inputs.

“We’re expanding to quite a lot of segments within the industry. For this product we’re working with companies in automotive, aerospace and defence, and telecommunications. There’s a really wide use for this,” explains Jagodic.
