Thats a good move. T&M industry needed this from long time.

You are on the right point, but this where the open source industry ( yes I would say industry ) is running around, ultimately there will be somewhere a catch. But still these initiatives will be a great source of information and resource for small firms and developers.

It is not entirely clear how far Red Pitaya's open-source commitment goes.

It looks strong in software, still there in FPGA implementation but will the company be happy if I clone the board and sell it $10 cheaper.

They may argue that the cloud-based market in apps and applets wiill maintain their advantage.

Yes it does seem like an interesting idea.

It reminds me of when PC add-in cards suddenly created a spate of PC add ons.

It now seems that smartphone, tablet is creating a similar round of activity.

 

"The price, 299$ , although much lower than the instruments it replace, seems higher than BOM. so we can similar cheaper devices in future,:" said eewiz.

Wow you want a lot....Of course it is higher than the BOM. How else can the founders of Red Pitaya make their fortunes.

$299 is described as a promotional price, implying you can expect the price to go up after they have launched the company.

But could industry buy these boards and create added value business around them? Or is it just for hobbyists?

Great Initiative in T&M Segment

Really a very great initiative in the T&M is going very a costly affair for a mid size or small firms, most of the time they remain hand cuffed or ask for rentals of high end equipments, where as they do have enough expertise of modifying or developing T&M provided a Working Template or Option is available. This open source initiative will be surely help those developers. Great work done, and the same to be done ahead.

Awesome idea....It is time somebody came up with something like this. With all this computing power in smartphones, most of the things done by hardware in the T&M instruments can be done by software in smartphones. So why pay huge $$$ to Agilent and others..

The price, 299$ , although much lower than the instruments it replace, seems higher than BOM. so we can similar cheaper devices in future.

There was this company http://www.redfishinstruments.com/products doing similar things.. No news for a long time though
