Reading time ( words)

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."

Most PCB designers know precisely how Captain James T. Kirk felt because we often feel the same way when starting a new design. We are launching into something that we ultimately don't know how it will turn out. We don't know the difficulties we'll face or problems we’ll need to fix. While we can control the design process and use our skills to make reasonable decisions, there are often huge hazards awaiting us in the "unknown." One worsening problem for all designers is component procurement.
