NECTO Studio 2.3.0 IDE from MIKROE adds Red Pitaya enabling signal analysis to be performed without expensive lab equipment

Planet Debug – industry’s first hardware-as-a-service platform - now adds remote signal analysis to remote development and debugging

November 2022: MikroElektronika (MIKROE), the embedded solutions company that dramatically cuts development time by providing innovative hardware and software products based on proven standards, today announced full support for Red Pitaya, sometimes referred to as the ‘Swiss army penknife for engineers’, within version 2.3.0 of NECTO™ Studio IDE, MIKROE’s complete, cross-platform software development environment. Red Pitaya enables design engineers to replace bulky and expensive lab instruments with a single compact, open-source platform. More, In combination with NECTO Studio and Planet Debug, Red Pitaya enables engineers to view and analyze real-time signals on remote boards.

Red Pitaya is leading a revolution in the electronics industry, pioneering the move from closed, fixed-functionality instruments to multifunction, open-source software-defined instruments that are able to satisfy broad spectrum of customers in different market segments. Red Pitaya comprises powerful, high-precision measurement tools including, oscilloscopes and signal generators, spectrum analyzers, logic analyzers and Bode analyzers. Comments Neb Matic, CEO, MIKROE: “Red Pitaya is a perfect partner for our NECTO Studio IDE and Planet Debug – industry’s first  hardware-as-a-service platform which enables remote development and debugging. Now, users can not only code and debug remotely on real hardware, they can also remotely analyze the signals using Red Pitaya’s extensive toolkit.”

NECTO Studio 2.3.0 is a complete, cross-platform software development kit for embedded applications providing everything necessary to start developing, and prototyping, including Click™ board applications and GUIs for embedded devices. Rapid software development is easily achieved as developers do not need to consider low-level code, freeing them up to focus on the application code itself. This means that changing the MCU or even the whole platform does not require developers to redevelop their code for the new MCU or platform. They can simply switch to the desired platform, apply the correct board definition file, and the application code will continue to run after a single compiling.

Engineers can also use NECTO Studio 2.0 to run Planet Debug, industry’s first hardware-as-a-service platform which enables designers to develop and debug embedded systems remotely without investing in hardware. For just $4/day, designers can reserve time on a remote Planet Debug station configured to their requirements, and develop and debug their own applications code remotely through NECTO Studio without having to source the hardware, wait for it to arrive and install and configure each element.

About MikroElektronika

MikroElektronika (MIKROE) is committed to changing the embedded electronics industry through the use of industry standard hardware and software solutions. In 2011, the company invented the mikroBUS™ development socket standard and the compact Click Boards that use the standard to dramatically cut development time. Now the company offers 1000 Click Boards – ten times more than competitors – and the mikroBUS standard is included by leading microcontroller companies such as Microchip, Renesas and Toshiba on their development boards. SiBRAIN is MIKROE’s latest standard, for MCU development add-on boards and sockets. MikroElektronika also makes the world’s widest range of compilers and additionally provides development environments, development boards, smart displays and programmers and debuggers.

How SHP in plastic packaging addresses 3 key space application design challenges

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

TI’s SHP space-qualification level provides higher thermal efficiency, a smaller footprint and increased bandwidth compared to traditional ceramic packaging. The common package and pinout between the industrial- and space-grade versions enable you to get the newest technologies into your space hardware designs as soon as the commercial-grade device is sampling, because all prototyping work on the commercial product translates directly to a drop-in space-qualified SHP product.
