Red Pitaya for Academia
When it comes to teaching tools for electrical engineering and programming, you’d be hard-pressed to find a tool better than Red Pitaya.
Our FPGA-powered boards can not only replace most of the equipment found in electrical engineering laboratories for a fraction of the cost but also empower students to work on their own projects and take the first steps towards becoming real engineers.
Replace Your Lab Instruments
Why spend thousands of dollars to have your students crammed in front of bulky machines when they could each use their own instrument in the form of a Red Pitaya? Take a look at which instruments you can replace with our boards:
Keep it simple with the Web Interface
Because Red Pitaya uses a web interface and all the software is running on the board, there’s no need to install any proprietary software to get started. All you have to do is open your web browser, connect to the board and select which application you want to run.
To make your job easier, Red Pitaya offers a growing collection of teaching materials and video tutorials.

The transition to remote learning has made it impossible to bring students to university laboratories to let them learn through experimentation and hands-on measurements of various phenomena. While Red Pitaya cannot return students back to laboratories, we can put a laboratory in their hands.
Following the unprecedented COVID-19 spread, universities around the world were faced with a unique challenge – how to keep up with the classes without being physically present. The move to distance learning had to be done quickly and at once. This also started a vast re-organization of the universities and re-evaluation of existing processes. Furthermore, professors faced a new challenge on how to remotely support their students.
Device functionalities and data can be accessed through Matlab, Labview, Scilab and Python API’s. The time to develop new applications is short thanks to the intuitive software design, many useful examples and detailed documentation. Here's a more detailed description of each tool with examples like MATLAB, LABview and Jupyter/Python.
Red Pitaya boards for Professors and Students
Our customers' testimonials
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.
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.
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.
