Red Pitaya


Red Pitaya is an open source measurement and control tool replacing many expensive laboratory instruments at a surprising price tag.

This powerful exotic tool is at the heart of a revolutionary Red Pitaya Ecosystem, which facilitates discovering, experiencing, learning, developing and sharing a variety of applications.

The Red Pitaya Ecosystem consists of:

Red Pitaya, a high performance tool at a surprising price tag.

Bazaar, a free of charge marketplace where open source applications are available within a single click for immediate experience and use. Initial set includes:

  • oscilloscope
  • spectrum analyzer
  • arbitrary signal generator
  • frequency response analyzer
  • PID controller

which can all be accessed by any WEB browser from tablet or laptop computer; and it is growing!

Backyard, an organized repository containing the corresponding open source code and tools necessary for developing applications.

Spark Center, is a place to share and contribute new ideas, post sketches or proposals and together create inputs for new Red Pitaya applications and hardware extension modules. Don’t forget that every idea counts and there are no bad ideas while brainstorming. The only requirement we have is to post only things related to Red Pitaya.
