Testimonials

  • Christoph Crosepet (Professor at Brown University)

    Red Pitayas in the classroom will offer university students an introduction to not only a wide variety of scientific and analytical instruments, but the electronics design, DSP (digital signal processing), FPGA and basic programming logic which is at the heart of many fields today.

  • Nancy Golden (Professor)

    Red Pitaya is a student's dream. Affordable and portable. I like the community aspect that encourages students to stretch themselves and explore new options – an inherent trait required for every budding engineer.

  • Andrew Back (Open Source and Technical Communities Consulting)

    Fantastic little board that puts capabilities which were previously the reserve of well-funded labs into the hands of hobbyists, makers, classrooms and professional engineers with modest budgets.

  • Katie Denton (Part of the Women@NASA mentoring program)

    Red Pitaya is an amazing tool. Not only do I use it weekly as an instrument (mostly as an oscilloscope), but it is also a very powerful and versatile development board. Using Visual Programming and the Sensor Extension Module, I can quickly and easily turn my ideas into fully working projects!

  • Ulrich Habel (Radio Communication System Engineer and author of the Radio Box application)

    Red Pitaya is exactly what I have been looking for: having one of the latest FPGAs combined with fast and broad AD- and DA-converters attached to that chip.

  • David Schuster (Professor and Researcher at the University of Chicago

    I have been investigating the Red Pitaya board for the past few months and we've been very impressed with its accessibility and usefulness for research.

  • Daniel DeCiccio (CEO, Research Instruments Corporation)

    Research Instruments Corporation incorporates a Red Pitaya into the core of its X-ray Plasma Sources. The Red Pitaya allows us to eliminate the need for a separate control computer and monitor the X-ray output in a reliable, compact and cost effective-manner. Thanks to their size, capability and reliability, Red Pitayas are the brain behind our X-ray sources going forward.

  • Adam Carlson (Advanced Lead Engineer at GE Aviation)

    I have had the chance to have a Red Pitaya from the initial release. The device is my “go-to” desktop testing tool. Its capabilities far exceed its size. The best part is that the community is expanding as are the hardware and software options. The Red Pitaya is truly blossoming. I look forward to its future growth.

  • Jorg Saure (What is so special about making an SDR transceiver with Red Pitaya by yourself?)

    The answer to that is that, in a short period of time, you will experience a sense of and create a super SDR transceiver which can be compared to other equipment in a considerably higher price achievement range.

  • Bob Wilson, N6TV

    "Thanks to Pavel Demin's free SDR Receiver App, the Red Pitaya can be used by both CW Skimmer Server and RTTY Skimmer Server to monitor about 180 kHz on each of EIGHT different radio bands, simultaneously.  I'm not aware of any other SDR currently on the market that can do this so well at such a low cost."
