The STEMlab open source test and measurement environment gains improved performance at a low price for greater accessibility to the technology
STEMlab from Red Pitaya is a test and measurement environment designed to provide a low-cost alternative to many expensive measurement and control instruments. STEMlab 250-12 offers enhanced hardware performance, complete software control and additional hardware features over the STEMlab-125 products and is designed to meet the needs of more demanding users for industrial, research, test & measurement and data acquisition applications. Its larger FPGA enables greater real-time processing capabilities plus faster analogue front and back-end performance.
The new STEMlab 250-12 is a two-channel 250 Msps 12-bit signal acquisition and two-channel 250 Msps 14-bit signal generator module with Zynq 7020 Dual-Core ARM cortex-A9 CPU and FPGA, 1GB DDR memory and 1 Gbit Ethernet connectivity.
According to Red Pitaya, the STEMlab 250-12 builds on the existing open-source STEMlab range by offering high performance signal capture and analysis with remote access at an affordable price. It can be used as an oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer and logic analyser with more applications to be released in future, and extends the Red Pitaya user community to include more demanding users, who can use it as an as an alternative to individual, expensive dedicated instruments.”
