Open-source T&M supplier Red Pitaya goes multi-channel
Open-source test and measurement supplier Red Pitaya announced it is going multi-channel at embedded world 2022.
Applications like medical and industrial imaging (MRI andultrasound systems), nondestructive testing, RADAR/LIDAR, phased array antennas, readout ofscientific multichannel detectors, multi-channel SDR receivers or power grid monitoring require multi-channel signa lacquisition and generation solutions that can become very costly, as the price grows rapidly with each added channel.
Red Pitaya is meeting this challenge 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 synchronised 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 of Red Pitaya comments: “There are several medical, telecommunications and automotive applications that require multi-channel RF signal processing solutions and 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.”
Red Pitaya has made its presence felt in the test and measurement market with its open-source range of high-performanceinstruments.
Companies like Bosch, Apple, NASA, Siemens,HIGHVOLT and many others trust Red Pitaya's products for their performance, versatility and ability to be customised.
