Digi-Key Electronics, which offers the world’s largest selection of in-stock and ready-to-ship electronic components, announced that it has secured a global distribution partnership with Red Pitaya to offer their @HOME kit, which was created specifically for professors and students working remotely or at home.
The Red Pitaya STEMlab 125-10, on which the @HOME kit is based, is an affordable, all-in-one open-source board, which can replace 12 benchtop lab instruments. Features include Matlab remote control, Labview control, FPGA programming, Jupyter/Python programming, oscilloscope, signal generator, spectrum analyzer, LCR meter, and more.
@HOME is an easy-to-use remote lab or take-home kit because all applications are accessible via a web-based user interface. Furthermore, future operating system updates are completely free of charge.
“We are pleased to bring Red Pitaya’s @HOME kit to Digi-Key customers including students and professors,” said Y.C. Wang, global academic program director at Digi-Key. “The past year and a half have proven that it’s more important than ever to provide flexibility in an education setting, and the @HOME kit offers the versatility and portability to bring lab exercises to remote or at-home settings.”
“We developed the @HOME kit for professors, in order to provide a hassle-free learning experience for students,” said Črt Valentinčič, chief technology officer at Red Pitaya. “We aim to make class preparations easier by also providing free step-by-step teaching examples, and the affordable price tag makes this available for every student.”
