Can it be used to speed up the hardware development. like there is a long cycle in hardware development schematics, boards, placing compnents and testing and then proving. Using Red Pitaya the concept can be proven first. One can save some time and cost.

I would once again encourage you to go to their website and go to the details page as they have much more information there, but here is the sumary.  The device has 2 analog inputs and 2 analog outputs that are 14bit and about 50MHz.This compares to most other scopes that are only 8bit resolution.  there are also 2 PID control channels.  There are also some slower analog input channels that are slower speed, as well as 16 digital io channels.

 

I may have missed something as I am trying to do this on my phone while I am out of town 😉

I will see if I cannot get some details of how they plan on implementing their system and report back.

Looking forward to more posts. The programming/configuration language interface will be a key element. Lots of hardware functionality is cool but many times it is a pain to actually use it.

Hopefully lots of simple functional modules can be dropped in, connected and controlled easily...

The specs are in the forst link, but I will go and gather them up and post them in a comment.  I am aware of a few other potential applications that might find a home on the Red Pitaya.  It has the potential to be a VNA, logic analyzer, and a few others that still need to be coded up.  Due to the reconfigurable nature of the device, there are many potential applications.

I guess products specifications should be ready. Is it possible to share them?

@Max, I will be posting a few more posts about this device.  There will be one that is focused on the design side of things, what is it, and how did they arrive at the techincal solution, and then one where it is a review of the device itself.  As their Community develops, I may also come back and see how that is working.

 

Rok and his team have been top notch in allowing me to ask quite a few questions.

@Adam (aeroengineer): I remember seeing and writing about this Red Pitaya Kickstarter project when it had just launched -- I'm delighted to hear that they are doing so well -- hopefully you will be writing a blog or two about the Red Pitaya when you eventually get one in your hands.
